California: SFO to Monterey on public transport

Jump to last reply

Traveling to San Francisco end of August. Would like to divide time between San Francisco and Monterey/Carmel. This is my 5th trip to California which I have always enjoyed.
Have been trying to find public transportation from SFO to Monterey and looked at the Airport shuttle that travels that route. Unfortunately I would have over 3 hours wait as my flight arrives 12:40pm. Would need to allow at least 40 mins. getting from arrivals to pick up the shuttle for early bus leaving after 12noon.

Am trying to find another service. Amtrak does not show much service to Monterey and would take many more hours arriving Monterey making connections.

Looking at Caltrain which has service from San Francisco after 2pm which might be worth considering as it would be able to connect with bus going to Monterey Transit Station.
Need to know if Caltrain has a pick up close to Airport, at the airport and if not, how to reach their transit pick up station from airport. Does BART metro go anywhere close to it.

Trying to avoid getting stuck in afternoon traffic if I need to take a taxi. Any help much appreciated as I want to start looking for hotel.

I then plan traveling from Monterey to Lake Tahoe for several days if I can get transport to north Tahoe. Thanks to all for any suggestions. I have to rely on public transportation as will not be driving. Much appreciated.
