Getting to Pier 27, San Francisco, from the East Bay

I'm thinking about booking a cruise, sailing next month and need to find the least expensive way to get from home to the pier in San Francisco. The only time we ever used a taxi it cost over $100. Hoping to find something less expensive. Checked Uber and apparently they don't service my town. BART is a possibility (which station in SF is the closest?), but with luggage may not work. I usually take more on a cruise than for other travels. Would appreciate any suggestions.

BART would bring you to Embarcadero stop which would be your best bet and you could take a taxi from there but if you have lots of luggage, BART might be a challenge. How about the Ferry from Berkeley or somewhere in East bay. This would drop you off at the Ferry Building and from there easy cab ride to Cruise terminal. Could you not bribe a friend to take you. go early and take them out for lunch or dinner or breakfast depending on when your cruise leaves the port of SF.

sorry ferry does not go to SF from Berkeley but it does from Jack London Square, Alameda or Vallejo. Perhaps one of those would work.... You might also contact the cruise line or your travel agent if you used one to perhaps AAA to see if they can offer advice....

Thanks for responding Shar. Good to know either Embarcadero station on BART or Ferry Building on ferry would work. Ideally someone would drive me, but at the moment I don't know who that would be, with most friends working. Thanks again. I'll check with cruise line and AAA. Haven't used a TA for years!

Oh Giovanna, I too am happy to see you back on Fodor's. I will be on the cruise to Mexico with you! I can't wait to meet you. Your posts on your dear Angelo helped me get through a very tough time when my mother passed away.
