Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area: San Francisco International (SFO), Oakland International (OAK), and San Jose International (SJC).  SFO and OAK are most convenient to GGU Law because they provide direct access to San Francisco, using Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), the subway system. From SFO, the commute takes about 30 minutes via BART. From OAK, the commute is about 40 minutes. You will exit at the Montgomery Street BART Station, and GGU Law is less than a 5-minute walk.

 

Taxis, shuttle vans, and ridesharing, such as Lyft and Uber, are also available from both airports.

 

If traveling by car,

  • From the North Bay (Marin County): Golden Gate Bridge/Highway 101 south to Van Ness Avenue. Turn left on Bush Street, cross Market Street to First Street. Proceed one block to Mission Street. Turn right on Mission Street and proceed one-half block to 536 Mission Street.
  • From the South Bay (San Jose/Silicon Valley), Highway 101 to I-80 north (Bay Bridge/Downtown) to Fourth Street exit. Proceed one block on Bryant Street, turn left on Third Street, turn right on Mission Street, and proceed two blocks to 536 Mission Street.
  • From the East Bay (Oakland), Bay Bridge west to the Fremont Street exit. Turn left on Fremont, then left on Mission Street, and proceed one block to 536 Mission Street.

Airport Shuttle: If you are downtown, you can easily get to the Law School by using public transportation; however, using public transportation to get to the Law School from either airport can be difficult as you will need to transfer modes of transport somewhere downtown. You may want to contact Omega Shuttle at 773-483-OMEGA (773-483-6634) or www.omegashuttle.com. Omega has designated stops at the University and around Hyde Park.

The base fare for a trip on a CTA train is $2.25 and a CTA bus is $2.00 with up to two transfers permitted within two hours for an additional $0.25. We recommend that you purchase and load money onto a Ventra card or pass (the CTA’s transit card) so that you can take advantage of the reduced prices for transfers. To learn more about how to use the CTA or to plan your trip, please visit www.transitchicago.com.

Fares for a one-way ticket on the Metra commuter train run from $3.75 to $8.00 depending on the time of day you plan to travel.

By Airplane

Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) is the closest and most convenient airport, as it is only 6 miles from the Law Center.  Transportation to the Law Center from National Airport is available by Taxi, Metro, Uber, or Lyft.   By taxi, travel time to the Law Center is about 15 minutes, and the fare is approximately $15.00.  Be sure to tell the driver that you are going to the Law Center, NOT the main undergraduate campus.

By Metro, allow approximately 30 minutes.  The fare is $1.60 during rush hour (5:30-9:30 am, 3-8pm) Monday-Friday, and $1.20 during non-rush hours.  The Metro station is located across the street from the main terminal at National Airport.  Take the Yellow Line to Gallery Place.  When you arrive at Gallery Place, transfer to the Red Line (in the direction of Glenmont) and get off at Union Station.  Then follow the directions above.

Baltimore Washington Airport (BWI) and Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) are often less expensive than flying into Washington National airport.  BWI and Dulles airports are approximately 30 miles from the Law Center.

A taxi from BWI will cost approximately $50.00; however, you can take a shuttle bus from the airport to the MARC train station.  The ride to Union Station will cost $6.00.  For more information, please visit the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) website or the Baltimore–Washington International (BWI) Airport website.

A taxi from Washington Dulles to the Law Center will also cost about $50.00; however, you can take the Washington Flyer bus for $8.00 to the West Falls Church Metro Station.  Take the Orange Line (towards New Carrolton) and transfer at Metro Center to the Red Line (toward Glenmont).  Exit the Red Line at Union Station and follow the directions above.  For more information, visit the Washington Flyer website.

Parking is very limited around the Law Center.  There is a parking garage across the street from the Law Center at 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW, and the parking is $13 per day.  There is also limited metered parking available around the Law Center for $.25 per 20 minutes (in quarters only).
