“The drive up U.S. 101 is a vacation in itself, with its beautiful views of both the
Pacific Ocean and
the inland meadows,
hills and farmland.”

Getting Here & Getting Around

San Luis Obispo is accessible by car, air, bus and train.

By Car
San Luis Obispo is about 200 miles north of Los Angeles and 220 miles south of San Francisco on U.S. Highway 101. The most direct route from either city is U.S. 101; it’s a drive of about four hours either way. From San Francisco you can also drive to SLO on spectacularly scenic Highway 1, although the road is slow and winding and subject to closure in bad weather. That takes about six hours. From the east (including Fresno and Bakersfield), take Highway 46 west to Paso Robles, then head south on U.S. 101.

By Air
San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP) is served by United Express and US Airways. Passengers can fly non-stop from and to Los  Angeles, San Francisco and Phoneix. The airport is five miles south of downtown on Highway 227.


By Train
Amtrak serves San Luis Obispo several times a day via the Coast Starlight from Seattle and the Pacific Surfliner from San Diego. Buses meet many trains. The Amtrak depot is at 1011 Railroad Avenue; 1-800-USA-RAIL or 805-541-0505.

By Bus
Greyhound and many tour and charter companies serve San Luis Obispo. The Greyhound terminal is at 1460 Calle Joaquin; 805-543-2121.
