A: We recommend passengers take public transit whenever possible—and there are plenty of options to choose from. BART rapid rail connects SFO to San Mateo County, San Francisco and the East Bay. Caltrain commuter rail also serves SFO (transfer at Millbrae to BART). SamTrans buses link SFO to San Mateo County, San Francisco and Palo Alto. For car rentals, SFO’s Rental Car Center is a convenient location for both pick-up and drop-off, and is served by the AirTrain automated people mover. Other transportation options for SFO include airporter buses, pre-arranged vans and shared-ride vans, taxis, limousines and charter bus operators.

Q: Where do I park at SFO to visit T2?
A: The most convenient place to park is Domestic Parking Garage, a 5-level facility located, for your convenience, in the center of the airport. With short and easy access tunnels to all the terminals, this garage is an ideal place to park for business and leisure passengers traveling on a short trip or for those coming to pick up arriving domestic passengers. To access the facility, follow the Domestic Terminal signs under the International Terminal and then follow the “hourly” parking signs to the entrance. Upon arrival in the garage, please park in section “D” for easiest access to the terminal.

Environmental Sustainablity

SFO’s Terminal 2 renovation project focused on sustainability, giving you a new terminal that’s as green as it is beautiful. Check out T2’s sustainable design features:

LEED Gold Certification – The T2 Renovation Project is projected to achieve Gold Certification under the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The innovative sustainable elements will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 1,667 tons per year.

Waste Reduction Program – Contractors recycled an impressive 90% of construction and demolition debris. Ongoing source separation of all recyclable solid waste will enable the attainment of 75% recycling by 2010 and 90% recycling by 2020.

Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Initiatives – T2’s design includes a number of measures to reduce the carbon footprint of the terminal, including Preconditioned (PC) Air and power supply to all aircraft, energy efficient lighting and efficient machinery, and reuse of substantial portions of the existing building.

Concessions Program – The airport expects its food and beverage tenants to provide sustainable food to the greatest extent possible.


Forget the food court. The Terminal 2 concessions give travelers a real taste of San Francisco with Bay Area shopping, great local food, and a sleek, open space to enjoy it in.

T2 Concessions include:

  • ✈ 12 restaurants and a retail street with a gourmet market, wine bar, bookstore, spa, museum store, art exhibits, and specialty retail stores
  • ✈ A “club room” feel to the dining and passenger waiting areas with blended spaces, plenty of seating options, and children’s play areas
  • ✈ A fresh, sophisticated San Francisco focus in all retail shops
  • ✈ Emphasis on sustainable food in all restaurants

The Art of T2

The remodeling of Terminal 2 gave the Arts Commission two exciting opportunities: to commission new and dynamic work by great local and national artists, and to re–install important work by leading local, national, and international artists from the Airport’s collection. The Airport and Arts Commission partnered to commission three large signature artworks for the Terminal’s glass façade, entry lobby mezzanine area, and the post–security area, and two more interactive artworks for the children’s play areas.
