Understand

Climate

Daly City has a mild climate, with wet, mild winters and dry summers. In most months, you can expect the temperature be in the 60s or 70s degrees Fahrenheit (between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius). Be prepared for cool humid weather, even in the summer (except September), when persistent fog often envelops the city.

Daly City is on the south western side of San Francisco, closer to the Pacific ocean. Thus, it tends to be cooler and cloudier.

Get in

By plane

There are three airports in the San Francisco Bay Area:

  • San Francisco International, [1] (IATA: SFO) located about 10 mi (16 km) south of the city.
  • Oakland International, [2] (IATA: OAK) in the East Bay.
  • Mineta San Jose International, [3] (IATA: SJC) in Silicon Valley, about 1 hour south of San Francisco.

Oakland and San Jose tend to offer more discount airline flights, while San Francisco Airport attracts more international flights and can be more convenient for those staying in the city.

By train

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), ☎+1 415 989-2278, [4] provides a regional frequent rail service connecting much of the East Bay and Contra Costa County with Daly City, San Francisco and the San Francisco Airport through the Transbay Tube, a tunnel underneath San Francisco Bay. BART operates five routes, of which four reach Daly City. BART also meets Caltrain at Millbrae. Bicycles are allowed on BART except between stations designated in the schedule brochure during commute hours. Fares vary depending with distance traveled, and start at $1.40 for trips within the city. You will need to insert your ticket into barriers when entering and exiting the system. Tickets hold a balance, deducting the appropriate price for each trip, so someone who plans to use the system several times can buy a $10 or $20 ticket and not worry about fares until the card is used up.
