Pedicabs, shuttles, BART, Muni, walking, oh my! Our little “City by the Bay” will get pretty jam-packed during Dreamforce '18 so in order to maximize your time here, make sure you know how to get around the campus, to and from your hotel, and more. Let this be your one-stop transportation guide for everything Dreamforce:
We can say with the utmost certainty that the best way to get yourself from place-to-place around the Dreamforce campus is using your own two feet. Make sure you're wearing comfortable walking shoes to get around! And to figure out how far you need to walk, check out the distance in miles between each Dreamforce venue:
*Distances are Google's shortest walking distance rounded to the nearest 10th mile.
In addition to the above, Agenda Builder is now equipped with a new “distance features”. In Agenda Builder, the travel time is highlighted between your current and next session. Directions will note the travel time between the session you're looking to go to and any previous enrolled session. A banner alert will appear on your enrollment action if there's a tight connection.
San Franciso has a robust public transportation system. San Francisco has four separate rail systems which include the BART, Muni, Caltrain, and classic cable cars.
BART is a system built to act as a regional commuter train. It provides quick access between the San Francisco and Oakland International Airports and the downtown hubs of San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley.
Caltrain runs from San Francisco to San Jose connecting Silicon Valley and Stanford. It provides easy access to the San Jose Airport and creates an express route between San Jose and San Francisco.
Muni is the name for San Francisco’s network of buses, cable cars, and light rail trains. Muni Rail helps pick up where the BART leaves off, helping riders’ access destinations west of the city toward the coast and will get you to AT&T Park, Fisherman’s Wharf, and move riders along the bayfront piers via its streetcar F line. Muni Buses help connect visitors with Presidio, The Golden Gate Bridge, and Lombard Street.
We have shuttles running to and from any of our 100+ official hotels. All official Dreamforce attendee hotels will have complimentary shuttle service directly to the Moscone convention center. If you're staying at one of our official hotels, check the Dreamforce Shuttle sign in your lobby for specific route information (see below).
