The Harper House Accomodations
1562 Waller St. San Francisco, CA 94117
(415) 522-1560

The Harper House is located in the center of San Francisco, in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. It is conveniently accessed by MUNI, the public transportation system of San Francisco, for travel within the City. Of course, airport door-to-door shuttles as well as taxis also provide quick and easy service. The shuttles are substantially less than a taxi.

Door to Door shuttles are available from the upper level of the airport terminal, on center pedestrian isle. When taking a shuttle from the airport, tell the driver you wish to go to the Haight-Ashbury with the address of 1562 Waller Street, cross-street Belvedere.

It is now also possible to take BART from the San Francisco Airport into the city. The fare is about $4.90. Ride to the Civic Center Station and exit the BART system. You will see signs to the MUNI system. Enter at the turnstyles (fare = $1.50) and go down to the platform. Take the N-Judah / Ocean Beach train OUTBOUND. The train will come up to ground level, and quickly go through a tunnel. Immediately after the tunnel is a stop at CARL and COLE. Get off. Turn Right on COLE ST., and walk two blocks to Waller. (IF you come to Haight St., you've gone one block too far.) Turn right on Waller, and 1562 is on the left before Belvedere.

Parking is available only on the street. It can be challenging to find a spot occasionally. Frequently, a curb-side space can be found within a three block radius. There is also a lot at nearby (3 blocks) Kezar Stadium which offers parking for $12 a day (no in / out).
