Getting There - Counterpulse

CounterPULSE is located just west of the corner of 9th Street and Mission, at 1310 Mission Street (north side of Mission Street).

Here's how to get there...

BICYCLE: is the easiest way to get to CounterPULSE but we do not have indoor bike parking, sorry! There are many parking meters nearby to lock bikes to. You can also lock your bike inside the paid BART area at the east end of the Civic Center BART station if you so choose.

by BART: Civic Center station, exit at 8th and Market, walk one block west to 9th, turn left (south) and walk one block to Mission, and then 20 feet right (west) to our front door.

by MUNI: 14 Mission runs directly in front, and we are just a one block walk from Market Street where countless MUNI lines run. For directions from the J, K, L, M, N, see BART above.

by GOLDEN GATE TRANSIT: Most Golden Gate Transit buses arriving from Marin and Sonoma counties turn at 8th Street and Mission. We are one block west of that corner.

by SAMTRANS: Routes MX and DX go down Mission and stop within a short walk of our front door.


from the East Bay: take the Bay Bridge to the 9th Street/Civic Center exit. Drive north on 9th Street until you reach Mission. We are just off the corner of this intersection.

from the Peninsula: take 101 north to 7th Street exit, proceed north to Howard Street, turn left two blocks to 9th, and then right to Mission.

from Marin and points north: Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard, Van Ness to Civic Center. Turn left from Van Ness onto Fell Street, cross Market, and proceed one block to Mission. Turn left on Mission and we are at the other end of that block.

PARKING: All day parking is available behind our building at Stevenson Alley and 9th, and for shorter visits the Civic Center municipal garage under the Civic Center Plaza can be accessed by continuing north on 9th Street, across Market onto Larkin, turn left on McAllister, and then U-turn before Polk into the garage entrance. For the shortest of visits there are a number of meters in our neighborhood, but beware of the 4-6 p.m. TOWAWAY time… Park on a meter along 9th between Howard and Mission if you can. Street parking after 6pm and on Sundays is free and generally plentiful.
