ALERT: TRAVELING TO SAN FRANCISCO and the SYMPOSIUM
There is a possibility that the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system may go on strike this week. If you plan to ride BART to get to San Francisco, either from the airports or to the symposium, please be aware of your transit options in case of strike.
Here are a few resource guides if BART does strike:
It just came to my attention that the address for the Morgan Auditorium is incorrect on the Eventbrite site.
Please note the CORRECT ADDRESS is: 491 Post St @ Mason St.
It was announced today that the Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) is officially on STRIKE for Friday, Oct 18, so if you were planning to travel to SF via BART you will need another plan.
Whether the strike will continue through the weekend is uncertain, but could be likely and so you should give yourself extra time to travel over the Bay Bridge if coming from the East Bay.
BART is providing a limited charter bus service free of charge - read more here: http://www.bart.gov/news/articles/2013/news20131004.aspx
