This section applies to people coming from the East Bay.
We urge you to consider taking public transportation.
You can accomplish this by first taking Bart to the 24th St. Mission station. Then
take Muni Bus Number 48 to Clipper ST and Diamond Blvd. On Saturdays, in the daytime,
a #48 bus is scheduled to stop every 20 minutes. Regular bus fare is $2; it is $.75
for those 65 or older.
This does not apply to the Fremont - Daily City and the Richmond - Daily City Bart
lines. They do not start early enough on Saturdays.
This will work for the Pittsburg/Bay Point - SFO/Millbrae line.
It will also work for the Dublin/Pleasanton - Daily City line.
If necessary you can take the Richmond - Fremont line to get to one of the above
two trans-bay lines.
Here is an example:
Take Pittsburg/Bay Point - SFO/Millbrae Bart to 24th St. Mission station early enough
to arrive comfortably before 9:04 AM.
Take the 9:04 Am Bus Number 48 west to Clipper St. And Diamond Heights Blvd. Tell
the bus driver you want to get off at Diamond Heights Boulevard (This is not the
same as Diamond Street; don’t get off there.) You should arrive there at about 9:20
You want to get off at Diamond Heights Boulevard. Do not confuse it with Diamond
Street. They are two separate entities.
The following map is borrowed from the section: TheHike->Bus-from-NV. Your bus will
pass through the Noe Valley and then follow the route on this map to your destination.
So after you enter the Noe Valley you can use this map to monitor your progress.
After passing Clifford Terrace, pull the cable running along the insides of the bus
to signal the driver you want to get off at the next stop, Diamond Heights Boulevard.
If you do this correctly a red light , up front and towards the ceiling, should indicate:
stop requested. If this doesn’t happen, tell the driver you want to get off at the
next stop, Diamond Heights Boulevard.
If you arrive early enough, we suggest you first go view the optional Clipper Terrace
Gardens. It is not on the way to the assembly point, but it is only a few minutes
walk from your bus stop. The bus stop for the return home is not so conveniently
located for this option. See TheHike->Extra for details.
Again , we borrowed the following map from the section:TheHike->Bus-from-NV.
