SRI International is located at 333 Ravenswood Ave in Menlo Park, between Middlefield Rd and El Camino. 101 exit: Willow Road.
The AI Center's web site contains directions to SRI, other nearby hotels, and airport information. Please see [AIC Directions].We suggest you try these two hotels first so that most people end up staying at the same hotels: Menlo Park Inn, Red Cottage Inn.
SRI is about 30 minutes south of SFO by car on highway 101. A taxi will cost approximately $85. You can take Super Shuttle from the airport to save money over a taxi cab, but they will probably make a few stops along the way.
You can also take the Caltrain commuter train line. Take BART from SFO or OAK to the Millbrae Caltrain station. Then take Caltrain south to the Menlo Park stop. There is also a free shuttle that takes passengers from SJC to the Santa Clara Caltrain station. Caltrain runs every half hour during business hours on week days, every 1 hour on Saturdays, and every 2 hours on Sundays. Express trains are available during commute hours. Please see the Caltrain website for up-to-date schedules. Read on for walking directions from the CalTrain station to SRI.
Please follow these directions closely. If you encounter a gate at any point, you are going the wrong way. Please find your way back to Ravenswood Avenue and proceed to the main SRI entrance from there.
Please find directions to SRI's International Building lobby below. Once you arrive at the International Building lobby, SRI staff will escort you to the conference room. If nobody is attending please call Wilma at x4904 or Tomer at x2692 from the lobby's phone.
