SF to Santa Cruz Public Transportation

Dear Fodorites: I'll be visiting relatives near Santa Cruz in a few weeks. I'll fly into San Francisco for a few days stay in a downtown hotel. Then I'd like to get to Santa Cruz without a car. I've done some research and found that I can take Cal Train from San Francisco to San Jose. I've heard there's a bus that goes from SJ to Santa Cruz down Route 17, but I've been unable to find their website or any information. Any information that anyone has on this leg of the trip is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Yes, that link did help. I found the 970, Highway 17 express San Jose to Santa Cruz, and it appears to leave from the Cal Train terminal in SJ so it's very convenient. Thanks so much.

Check also Amtrak, type in trip from SFC to Santa Cruz to see if there are Amtrak buses from San Jose or Salinas to Santa Cruz.

San Francisco to Santa Cruz by Cal Train and the Hwy 17 bus is fast, safe and easy. Be sure to check the drop-off points in Santa Cruz, however, since some end at the Park and Ride lot at Dominican Hospital and others go right into downtown.

I believe the Amtrak bus has been replaced by the Hwy 17 bus.
