Arriving by Muni
Public transportation is the preferred method of getting to the Folk Festival, both because of the smaller environmental impact and because of the limited parking in the area. Fortunately, a number of Muni buses stop at or very near to the Festival location. They are:
#31 Balboa stops at Turk & Lyon, right in front of Cyprian's
#24 Divisadero travels N/S and stops 3 blocks away
#5 Fulton stops along McAllister, 2 blocks away
#43 Masonic has stops 2 blocks away on Masonic
Check nextbus.com for Muni arrival times.
Regular adult fare is $2.25 and children and seniors ride for $0.75. More information about Muni is available at the Muni Website and a trip planner is available.
Arriving by BART
Take BART to the Powell Street Station. Exit the BART station onto Market Street. Look for a sign saying 31 or 5; you can take either bus.
A 50 cent discount is available for adults when you transfer from BART to Muni. To get the discount, you must use the Clipper card that you used to buy your BART fare. The 50 cent discount will be automatically applied to your card.
More information about BART is available at the BART website.
