Whenever possible, we encourage the use of public transportation. Parking on Nob Hill is fairly scarce. If you need to drive, consider parking somewhere along the #1 California MUNI bus line. It is one the city's most frequent, dependable lines and has very convenient stops near the cathedral both inbound and outbound.
The California Street Cable Car stops at California and Taylor which is at the foot of the Great Stairs.
The 1 California bus stops at Sacramento and Taylor (outbound) or Clay and Taylor, walk one block south (inbound).
The Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason Cable Cars stop at Powell and California, walk two blocks west (up the hill).
The 27 Bryant bus stops at Leavenworth and California (northbound), walk one block west (up the hlll) or Hyde and Sacramento (southbound), walk two blocks east and one block south.
All of the above lines connect with Market Street buses, streetcars, subways, and BART. The two closest BART stations are Embarcadero and Powell. If you wish to walk from BART to the cathedral, Powell is closer but please note that the Powell Street hill is quite steep. If you wish to take public transportation to the cathedral, Embarcadero is a better choice since both the California Street Cable Car and the 1 California bus have stops nearby.
Daytime street parking near the Cathedral is limited to two hours, except on Sundays. There is no parking on the right (north) side of Sacramento Street on weekdays from 4 - 6 p.m. Please note that the tow away zone is strictly enforced.
