Re: Logistics for visitors to the Bay Area getting to the SPDX Forum on April 6

There is the Caltrain. From Union Square it's a long-ish walk to the train
station or you can take a quick cab ride.

There is light rail in San Jose that goes right up Tasman drive by Cisco.
I'll check into whether it goes to the San Jose Caltrain station -- I assume
it does.

By the time you do the walk/train/light rail it will be a fairly lengthy
trip, although driving at that time in the morning can be pretty heavy
traffic as well.

You could also head down to San Jose Thursday night and stay at a hotel
closer to the location of the Forum.

To my knowledge, there are trains from SF to San Jose that are pretty direct
during rush hour (little less than an hour). I'm not familiar with how far
it is from the train station to Cisco's campus, but perhaps from there a
shared cab might make sense? Maybe someone from Cisco can elaborate on that
(disclaimer: I don't actually live in the area)

Hopefully this isn't an inappropriate usage of this mailing list...

Two of us from Digium will be coming to the Bay Area to participate in
the LF Collaboration Summit and SPDX events. We'll be staying near
Union Square and aren't planning to have a rental vehicle since nearly
all of our activities in the Bay Area can be reached via public transit.

However, the SPDX Forum in San Jose is not practical to reach via
public transit from downtown San Francisco (two hours each way, it
appears, twice as long as driving). We could of course rent a vehicle
for that day, but that seems a bit wasteful since it would be parked
nearly all day.

I'm posting this here in hopes that someone might offer up a creative
solution (or two, or three). If there are other non-Bay Area
participants who will be in the same situation, we could try to
arrange some ride-sharing. If anyone who lives in the area would be
willing to offer carpool services (we'd be happy to offset the costs)
that would work as well.
Philippe and me will be in the same situation
No idea up to now about the best solution.
