Air Travel

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located about 9 miles to the south or a 15-minute ride from the Daly City BART station. SFO has 58 passenger carriers. The Oakland International Airport (OAK) is located about 26 miles to the east and has 12 passenger carriers. OAK is about 34 minutes from Daly City by motor vehicle (non-commute hours) or about 60 minutes by Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) and BART Shuttle.

Motor Vehicle Travel

Two major freeways serving Daly City are U.S. Highway 101 and Interstate 280. Interstate 280 essentially bisects Daly City geographically as well as in terms of the areas with the highest commercial and residential density. Interstate 280 is less congested than U.S. 101 and therefore offers a preferred route into San Francisco (and locations further north and east) as well as southern peninsula locations.

Public Transportation

As stated for "air travel", Daly City is served by the BART system, which provides access throughout the East Bay, San Francisco, and the San Francisco International Airport. BART also has an intermodal station at Millbrae that allows BART riders to access Cal Train that offers connections with San Jose and beyond. Daly City has two BART stations. The San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI) and the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) also serve Daly City. Bus service is provided throughout the City and converges at the Daly City BART stations and at the top of Mission Street ("Top-of-the-Hill") at John Daly Boulevard.
