Todd, United Stated (San Francisco)
speakerOK, the best way to get to the airport. Well, if you live in San Francisco, the best way from the south of the airport is to drive, but if you live north of the airport, there's a train and the train's quite convenient and you can take that. The only problem is is you have to pay for parking and parking is really expensive at the airport if you drive so, even if you are from the south you might want to consider taking a bus.
