Oakland International Airport (OAK) is the easiest to get in and out of. Traffic is generally lighter for this airport. Optimal travel conditions are 30-45 minutes.

San Jose International Airport (SJC) is close by, but the traffic coming in and out of San Jose is often troublesome. This is the heavy commute area—welcome to the Silicon Valley! If you choose this airport, be aware that depending on the day and time of travel you may have to add at least one hour to your travel time, i.e, under optimal travel conditions it takes 30-45 minutes to get from SJC to Fremont/Newark, during rush hour you could easily add one hour (sometimes more).

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is the farthest. Traffic is heavy crossing the bay (pay the bridge toll going from East to West [i.e., to the airport]). This too could add an hour or more during rush hour. Optimal travel conditions are 45-75 minutes.

Ground Transportation Options between Airports and Ohlone

SuperShuttle - Airport shuttle service to and from the airport from your home, office or hotel. Book your SuperShuttle reservation for airport transportation online or at (800) BLUE-VAN (258-3826) or catch a SuperShuttle van outside of departures at the airport.

Hotel Shuttle Service - Few hotels in Fremont or Newark offer free shuttle service to/from any airport. It is suggested you double check with your hotel to see if they have added this option.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) - There is a BART station in Fremont, but it is not close to the college. It is not necessarily a good option for visits to Ohlone College. However, it is a great way to visit San Francisco.
