Public vs. private transportation in San Francisco

Jump to last reply

Hello ! On a past post the general consensus seemed to be for me to use public transportation when at all possible in San Francisco, however there are a few facts that I realize I neglected to include that still have me questioning if it is in fact a good idea given my particular details. I'm listing what I see as the pros and cons. Please review and tell me whether it still makes sense to use Muni or not.

A. There will be a total of 13 of us. Purchasing a min. 1 day muni pass will total apx,$195.00. 3 day passes would be $299.00
B. The 511.org website is stating a 40 minute ride from our base in the Sunset district to the embarcadero (our first stop). (Would it take this long to drive? )
C. The possibility that at some point along our stops, we wouldn't all be able to get In the same bus/street/cable car due to our group size?

Questions/doubts about taking our own transportation:

A. We would have a 15 passenger van; am concerned about clearance at parking garages, are there any open lots in the downtown area?
B. What about if we find a lot slightly outside the downtown area but closer then Sunset and take muni from that spot? Does it make sense to do that?
C. We are generally early risers and would be out by 9:00 am, so wouldn't think we'd have a problem finding parking at the time.

I trust you guys, let me know your thoughts.
