Transportation Logistics

The Summit hotel (Marriott Silicon Valley in Fremont, California) is:

  • 10 miles from the San Jose airport (SJC) – the distance is shorter so travel time will be faster
  • 24 miles from the Oakland airport (OAK) – this airport is connected to BART so the travel will be cheaper

The hotel does not have an airport shuttle, so you have to navigate your own way to the Summit site.

Both the San Jose and Oakland airports have taxis, Uber, Lyft, and airport shuttles for hire. These will likely run $40 to $60.

Oakland has a direct connection to BART, the train, which travels to Fremont ($7). Estimated travel time on the train (not including waiting) from the Oakland Airport to Warm Springs/South Fremont station is approximately one hour. Attendees who utilize this transportation will need to exit at the Warm Springs/South Fremont station (two miles from the summit hotel, so a cab or Lyft for the last leg is required – or call someone you know with a car).

Our local storytellers do not recommend flying into San Francisco (SFO) – 33 miles from the hotel – unless you are planning to rent a car and/or extend your stay in the Bay Area and plan to be in San Francisco. Any savings you get flying into SFO will be lost on transport to the hotel: shuttles, cabs, or Lyft/Ubers will be double the cost of transport from San Jose or Oakland ($80 to $120+++).

The BART train does run to and from the San Francisco Airport. Estimated travel time on the train (not including waiting) SFO to Warm Springs/South Fremont station is 1 hour 45 minutes.
