Navigate San Francisco’s Congested Highways and Winding Hills with a Charter Bus

San Francisco’s tight streets and winding hills can make it difficult to navigate, especially if you aren’t familiar with the city. Add in an entire group of people to keep up with, and it can be just as difficult to split into rideshares or try to get everybody onto the BART in an orderly fashion.

With a charter bus by your side, no one has to worry about volunteering their personal car, searching for parking at Fisherman’s Wharf, or picking a designated driver after a bachelorette night out in SoMa. Charter buses booked through CharterUP’s self-serve platform are always operated by professional, experienced bus drivers, so you can relax and enjoy the ride while you leave the parking and navigating to a professional.

Take a tour of Alcatraz

Whether you’re a history buff or just filled with morbid curiosity, Alcatraz is a great stop for any San Francisco groups who want to experience a little history during their trip. Tours cover the former prison’s history from its beginnings as a fort to its transformation to a maximum-security penitentiary to its place in Native American civil rights history.

Your bus driver can drop off your group at Pier 33 on The Embarcadero so you can board your ferry out to Alcatraz. Parking in the area is extremely limited, so we recommend parking your bus at Fisherman’s Wharf in the interim.

Stroll through Fisherman’s Wharf & Pier 39

Sure, Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 are some of San Francisco’s more “tourist-y” areas, but we still think they’re worth a visit, especially if it’s your first time in the city. Here, you’ll find countless shops, restaurants, a video arcade, street performances, the Aquarium of the Bay, sea lions, and who knows what else! It’s a great spot to fill time between other big stops, or to stop and rest your feet while you enjoy a meal.

Fisherman’s Wharf has temporary bus parking, designated bus loading and unloading zones, and metered parking available for up to four hours. Before you head over with your group, check out Fisherman’s Wharf’s motorcoach parking guidelines to make sure your group is loaded and unloaded in a timely fashion!
