SFO to Burlingame

Upon arrival we will need to get from the airport to the place we are staying in Burlingame. What would be the best way to go.. cab or public transit?

A taxi costs between $15-20 to Burlingame from SFO. Public transit is way too much of a hassle and would not save you any time for the difference in cost.

Many places have a complimentary shuttle. Are you staying a private residence or at a hotel?

Cab is the best, but most of the hotels in Burlingame have shuttles to the airport. Check your hotel's website. Many of the hotels in Burlingame literally look on the bay runway at SFO.

There are also some shuttles to Burlingame, bt we can't be of much help without details.

You do need to be specific about where you are staying, and how you define "best?" Does that mean cheapest? Fastest? At what time of day, and do where (as earlier mentioned).

Here's a link that may help you with respect to free transportation that can be accessed if money is a key issue and you're creative about getting to some of the starting points:

OOPS. Sorry about that. We are staying at an apartment on Carolan Ave, so no hotel shuttle. We will arrive at around 2:30 on a Saturday afternoon and will be pretty tired after travelling 8-10 hours. If it was one simple bus ride we could probably do that, but I am thinking a cab would probably make more sense with our luggage etc. Would it be about a 15 minute drive?
