To get from San Francisco to Oakland:
From San Francisco merge onto US-101 S via the ramp to I-80 E/Oakland/San Jose
Take exit 433 on the left to merge onto I-80 E toward Bay Bridge/Oakland
Take exit 8B to merge onto I-580 E toward CA- Hayward/Stockton
Take exit 19C toward Downtown Oakland/I-980 W
You've reached the beginning of downtown Oakland
See I was going to go with, first you pull out your GPS, then you enter in a destination. (haha). Your actual directions are much better.
By using mapquest or yahoo maps, I not really sure. Because I am in southern California.
Take Bart from your closest SF station, then follow the color coded map to Oakland. The train will take you under the bay.
All lines go to West Oakland and then split off from there. For south Oakland (Lake Merritt area) you will need to take either the blur or green line. Yellow and Red will take you towards Berkeley and the norther stops.
Bart is very simple to use. You can buy tickets for your destination from automated machines at the station. The cost is factored by the distance you are traveling. You push a button for your intended destination. The machines take cash and select machines take credit or debit cards.
If you plan to drive, ErinElise provided excellent directions.
