RE: [802SEC] Transportation to/from SFO to the Hyatt


The 802.16 web page for this meeting 
<> has a few more details on this 

"BART rail service between San Francisco AIrport (SFO) and downtown 
San Francisco opened June 22 
<>. The Hyatt (at 
Market and Drumm) is one block northeast on Market Street from 
Embarcadero Station 
The scheduled trip time is 33 minutes on BART's Blue Line. The fare 
is $4.70. For more details on BART connections at SFO, and to Oakland 
International Airport (OAK), see the BART Airport Guide 

By the way, I don't think Rich Seifert was criticizing 802 for 
meeting outside of San Francisco. What caught my attention was the 
fact that 802 hasn't met in San Francisco (or anywhere in the Bay 
Area) since its very first meeting, and that helps to add a nice 
touch to the Ethernet 30th Anniversary event.
