I'll keep it short and sweet in Cliff notes form:

Flying from Boston and arriving at SFO at 2 am (I'm assuming not much runs at this hour except some samsTran trains, which I don't think help me much, so I expect to twiddle my thumbs and nap at the airport if I can't make any progress at this hour)
Need to get to Terminal Ave. in East Menlo Park by around 7am (temporary housing from Habitat for Humanity, who I will be working for)
511.org gave me 2 hour, $10 complex routes going through Oakland.

If anyone with some knowledge of the area and the public transportation services could give me a general idea of what to take I would appreciate it.


Thanks

P.S. Not bothered by walking a few miles at any point during this trip, but will have a duffle of stuff with me.

edit: Seems like a cab might be easier, but at least I have a few solid plans of action thanks to the diligence of ATBayers if not. Hopefully I can make a few AT friends in the area too :confused:

Nothing much will be going at 2am. If you can't take an airport shuttle then rpobably best to wait until public transit starts in the morning.
From trip-planner you can find the following:
Depart: Sfo in Burlingame

Then:
Go to: E. Corner Of Sf International Terminal South (Location map)

Board: Samtrans Bus #292/San Mateo&Hillsdale at 5:54 am (next bus 6:17 am) (schedule detail)
Fare: Free

Get Off: Bayshore Hwy & Stanton Ave at 6:07 am


Then:
Go to: S. Corner Of Bayshore Hwy & Stanton Ave (Location map)

Board: Samtrans Rex Line/E. Bayshore & Cooley at 6:14 am (next at 6:42 am) (schedule detail)
Fare: Pay $1.25

Get Off: Chilco & Constitution at 6:51 am

Take BART from SFO to Millbrae. Check schedule here
Take Caltrain from Millbrae to Menlo Park. Check schedule here

Then you have 3.8 miles to go. I don't know about the bus service around that area. but i guess you can check samtrans.

Agreed, unless you are utterly dirt poor.

I'd imagine there would be plenty of people up at that hour, but sadly gibing me a ride does not upgrade someones online character abilities. :)

I think I may just end up taking a cab, too bad really cause I was looking for an adventure.
