The LBNL shuttle bus is available from various locations around the City of Berkeley, including near the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

You can take the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train from San Francisco International Airport to the Downtown Berkeley BART station which is two short blocks from the LBNL shuttle line on the corner of Addison and Shuttuck.  The LBNL Blue Shuttle Bus will take you to the Blackberry Canyon entrance.  Let the driver know you are going to Wang Hall, Bldg. 59 (across the street from the main bus stop at Building 65).  Walk across the street and up Perlmutter Road.  Stay to your right up to the new Wang Hall.
