San Franciscans walk a lot! The Mission is very accessible on foot, and walking down the hip and popular Valencia Street (2 blocks away) from 24th Street to 15th Street is a great way to pass by the many excellent eateries of the area. The Bus and BART are less than 2 blocks away and we use UBER too!
Walking down 24th Street (1/2 a block away) you will quickly reach Philz Coffee and many of the neighborhood's best taquerias, bookstores, bakeries, grocery stores and restaurants.
The flat is a 5 min from BART- the City's underground high speed train and very close to many bus stops. The City has an excellent transit planner web site that allows you to enter in your starting address and destination (address or landmark) and it will tell you exactly which trains or buses to take to get you there! We also have Uber and a city bicycle share program where you can pick up and drop of bicycles at various locations around the City.
DISCOUNT CODE FOR UBER!: Rather than renting a car and struggling to find parking, consider using San Francisco's awesome and affordable private car service UBER, just download the UBER app, get a fare estimate for your trip based on the type of car you choose (UberX is the least expensive) and the car will pick you up in minutes! It's so awesome! This is how I myself get around SF as I do not have a car. If you use this promo code UBER will give you $15 in credits towards your first car ride ONLY IF YOU ARE A NEW USER WHO SIGNS UP WHILE YOU ARE IN THE USA - If you prefer not to take the Bart Train to the apartment, you can sign up for Uber at the airport using free Wifi and request Uber to drive you to the apartment instead of a Taxi - $15 OFF!
