[[Oakland]] and [[San Jose (California)|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. Private pilots should consider Oakland ({{ICAO|KOAK}}) rather than SFO, as the separate general aviation field there is more accommodating to light aircraft.

The San Jose airport is served by a free shuttle to both VTA Light Rail and [http://www.caltrain.com/ Caltrain] called the Airport Flyer — [http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_10.html VTA Route #10]. Passengers arriving in San Jose can use Caltrain to reach San Francisco directly (this costs $10.50 one-way [4 zone]). Caltrain also links with the BART system at the Millbrae intermodal station.  Be aware that public transportation within the South Bay is not as developed as around San Francisco.  Also, when riding Caltrain, be sure to buy your ticket at the automated station kiosks before boarding, as they are not sold on the trains.
