Public transport is feasible but slower: Oakland Airport At the airport take the AirBart Shuttle to the Oakland Coliseum BART station. Board a Richmond bound BART train and get off at the Berkeley Station. Exit the Berkeley station at Center Street. Walk east, uphill for half a mile until you reach the campanile. South Hall is on your right and the Womens Faculty Club is to the about 400 yards south east.
