[BART subway from San Francisco downtown]
The closest station to the SF Hilton Hotel is the Powell Str. Station.
Berkeley is a safe 24 minute ride from the Powell Str. Station. You must
catch the Concord bound train and transfer onto a Richmond bound train
at the Oakland City Center-12th Str. Station. Trains on Sunday
rendezvous every 20 minutes as indicated below.
	Powell      12th Str.       Berkeley
	8:17  ----  8:31 8:31  ----  8:41
	8:37  ----  8:51 8:51  ----  9:01
	8:57  ----  9:11 9:11  ----  9:21

It takes 15-20 minutes on foot from the Berkeley BART Station to reach
Bechtel Hall, which is located on the North-East part of campus. 
Bechtel Hall is just North of Evans Hall, home of the Computer Science
Division. North Gate is the nearest campus gate.
You can take a taxi from the front of the Berkeley BART Station. Ask the
taxi driver to enter from East Gate on campus and let you off at Mining
Circle. The tallest building adjacent to the circle is Evans Hall.
Bechtel Hall is just north of the Evans.
Get off at the University Ave. exit from Interstate 80. The east end of
University Ave. is the West Gate to UC Berkeley. Most street parking is
free on Sunday, but it may be scarce and remember to read the signs. If
you feel you must park in a lot, we recommend UCB Parking Structure H
which is located at the corner of Hearst and La Loma Avenues. You must
buy an all day parking ticket from the vending machine located on the
2nd level (the only one in the structure). You need to prepare 12
quarters. Illegal parking in Berkeley is expensive.
