2169 Mission Street
Ring the bell at the end of the arrow -- the one labeled "Noisebrige" =)

Noisebridge is located on the 3rd floor of 2169 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110-1219, between 17th and 18th street (37.76717 N, 122.418423 W), 1.5 blocks south of 16th Street Mission BART station. Use the intercom to ask to be buzzed into the space. An elevator with manually-operated doors is available, and here is some basic accessibility information.

Here is a Map of Noisebridge.

If this is your first time here, please review our visitor advice.

We have more information here on getting in using really space-age or really old-fashioned ways of opening doors.

You can also find directions to our old space.

Public transit is great to help plan your Bay Area travel.

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is about 30 minutes away. Oakland International Airport (OAK) is about 50 minutes away.

Caltrain, Capitol Corridor Muni and BART transit systems can help get you around the Bay area on public transit.

Getting Here by BART

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train service runs 4:30am-midnight weekdays, less on weekends. The train schedules are generally accurate to within about 3 minutes.

  • Take BART to 16th Street Mission Station
  • Get to street level via either exit
  • Walk 1.5 blocks south on Mission Street
  • Noisebridge is on the left, 2169 Mission, just before Mi Ranchito produce market

Getting Here by Muni

San Francisco is served by the Muni bus and light rail network. Only some lines run from 1am-5am, so called "Owl" service. Bus schedules are generally accurate to within 15 minutes. Nextbus has real-time bus arrival information. (Check stops near noisebridge here). Muni lines that pass particularly close to Noisebridge are:

14 Mission (stops in front of Noisebridge) (24 hour service)
33 Stanyan (stops in front of Noisebridge)
49 Van Ness-Mission (stops in front of Noisebridge)
22 Fillmore (24 hour service; closest stop 16th and Mission)
12 Folsom (closest stop 18th and Folsom)

Noisebridge is about a 15 minute walk from the Church St Light Rail Muni Station, served by the Muni light rail K, L, M, and T lines underground, and the J, N and F aboveground. (When riding the J Church line, it is closer to exit at the bottom of Dolores Park at 18th and Church rather than at Church and Market. The other Muni light rail lines also connect with BART at Civic Center Station; transferring to BART there may be faster than walking from Church Street.)


See the San Francisco Bike Coalition bike map for bike directions to Noisebridge. Noisebridge can be found in the center-right portion of this map.

Valencia Street, 1 block west of Mission, is an official route of the San Francisco Bicycle Network, with roomy bike lanes in both directions and calm traffic. For security you should bring your bike upstairs either via the stairs or elevator. Our bike rack has room for at least 14 bikes :-)


Find us on Google Maps or OpenStreetMap.

Evening street parking in the area is difficult since the 16th and Valencia area is a popular entertainment district. Most street parking in the area is metered 9am-6pm.

There is a commercial parking garage at 42 Hoff Street, about two blocks from Noisebridge. Several BART stations outside of San Francisco city limits also have parking available. San Francisco is famous for car break-ins; you should place all your valuables in the trunk of your car.
