GETTING AROUND SAN FRANCISCO ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION



I found a neat handout at the San Francisco Visitor's Center on Market Street.  You have to ask for it at the desk.  The Visitor's Center is found at the mouth of the Powell Street exit if you take Bart into San Francisco.  This handout has all the transit routes starting at the Visitors Center to points all over San Francisco.     Print it out before you go, or stop by the Visitor's Center and ask for a copy.
