Local Airports

Palo Alto is served by two major airports. Stanford University is roughly equidistant between the two airports.

Ground Transportation

SuperShuttle (The Blue Van) has shared rides for $26 from SFO and SJC, $75 for exclusive rides. You can make reservations at: or call 1-800-258-3826

Stanford Yellow Cab Company also has a special of $49$59 (depending on airport; gratuity not included). Reservations are required; call 650-289-0200. Be sure to ask for the Stanford University flat rate.

Getting Around

For guests staying at the Stanford Guest House, the Stanford Marguerite Shuttle SLAC line will take you to the main campus.  The SLAC line runs every 20 minutes from 7:30 a.m.5:30 p.m., and every 40 minutes from 5:30 p.m.8:30 p.m. See the Marguerite Shuttle schedule for more information.  The regular Marguerite SLAC line stops about a five minute walk from the meeting location, so it should be good for most people but might not work for people who are disabled.  On the route map the SLAC route is in green. For both meeting locations get off on Morris Way between Santa Teresa St and Panama St.  Lagunita Court is a good approximation of that stop on the Marguerite SLAC Schedule, so the shuttle that leaves SLAC at 8:10 or 8:30 should get people there in time for a 9:00 start.  In the evening, there are 5:35 and 6:15 departure times that can be taken to return to the Guest House.

There are a wide range of food options available on campus.  See the map of campus eateries.

Daily and weekly bicycle rentals are available at the Tresidder Memorial Union.  The Guest House no longer rents bicycles.

Zip Car and Enterprise Rent-a-Car are both available on main campus.  Zip Cars are found in the Tresidder Memorial Union Parking Lot.

Parking on campus is extremely limited and metered, so driving from elsewhere is somewhat difficult.  However, there is all-day pay parking that isn't particularly expensive at Tresidder Memorial Union. For information about on-campus visitor parking, see Stanford Parking and Transportation.
