Public transit

The BART system provides service from around the San Francisco Bay Area, including connections to San Francisco and Oakland International Airports and the Caltrain and Capitol Corridor commuter rail systems. The nearest airport is San Francisco International (SFO), 25 minutes by BART. BART service ends around midnight each day, depending on line and direction.

From within San Francisco, 16th and Mission is served by the Muni bus network, particularly lines 14 Mission, 22 Fillmore, 33 Stanyan, 49 Van Ness-Mission, and 53 Southern Heights. 16th and Valencia is served by the 26 Valencia line. Route 12 Folsom also passes nearby. Some, but not all, Muni lines run 24 hours a day.

Cycling

Valencia Street is an official route of the San Francisco Bicycle Network, with designated bicycle lanes in both directions. Noisebridge has a bike rack inside capable of holding five bicycles at a time. For security reasons, storing bicycles inside is preferred; if there isn't space, bicycles could be parked outdoors (with caution), perhaps locked to a bike rack on Valencia between 16th and 17th, or attached to a parking meter along 16th. There may be a relatively high incidence of bicycle theft in the vicinity of 16th and Mission.

Driving

Street parking in the area is difficult, since the 16th and Valencia area is a popular entertainment district. There is no parking available on Wiese Street. There is a commercial parking garage at 42 Hoff Street (Hoff Street is just across 16th Street from Wiese). Several BART stations outside of San Francisco city limits also have parking available.
