What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There is no parking at the Pier. There are several parking lots along the Embarcadero at which you may pay to park. However, Pier 9 is accessible via many forms of public transportation listed below:

  • Muni’s F Market streetcar stops in front of Pier 15, at Embarcadero and Green Street, right next door to Pier 9.
  • Muni bus lines 2, 6, 14, 21, 31, and metro rail lines J, K, L, M, T, N stop within walking distance. Bus lines 1, 10, 12, 41, and 38 also stop in the vicinity.
  • Embarcadero BART, Muni stations, and ferry terminals at the Ferry Building are all a 10- to 15-minute walk away.
