Join your fellow conference attendees and NRECA staff as we demonstrate our “Concern for Community” to benefit Family House.

Over the course of a year, Family House provides care, shelter and compassion to over 4,000 families. Volunteers will work together to write notes of encouragement for residents as well as pack food that will stock eight communal pantries benefitting Family House residents.

The volunteering event will be held at the conference hotel after the conference’s closing session. T-shirts and light refreshments will be available for volunteers. (Registration is not required for this event)

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit)

BART rapid rail is a fast and inexpensive way to get from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to San Francisco. A round-trip BART fare from SFO to downtown San Francisco is $19.30 ($9.65 one way) and is approximately 30 minutes each way.

After picking up your luggage, look for signs for AirTrain, the free airport tram service. All domestic terminals are one to three minutes ride to the SFO BART station. Take either the Red or Blue AirTrain line to Terminal G and BART stop in the International Terminal. Hop on the BART train going to the Embarcadero stop, as shown by the red line on the BART map.

The Red Line runs every 30 minutes and takes approximately 30 minutes from the San Francisco International Airport to the Embarcadero stop. The Embarcadero BART Station is steps away (0.1 miles) from the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Hotel. View the BART system map or the SFO map.

Buy your ticket at ticket machines at the SFO BART station. You can also purchase a BART SFO Voucher in advance to save time. The $21 voucher has enough value for a round-trip BART ride from SFO to downtown San Francisco. Note: this ticket voucher must be exchanged at the special SFO Information Desk before you go to the BART station.

Place your ticket at the designated slot on an entry faregate. When it pops out from the top slot, remove it to open the gate and board the train. When you arrive at your stop, repeat the same procedure to exit the station. If you don’t have enough value on your ticket to exit, don’t worry. You can add money to the ticket to exit at the Add Fare machine in the station.



Taxi service from SFO Airport to Hyatt Regency takes approximately 39 minutes with an approximate cost of $45 – $55 each way.


For all SFO rides, Uber and Lyft also collect a $3.80 drop-off or pickup surcharge. This surcharge will be paid directly to San Francisco International Airport.

Rideshare pickups locations are on Level 5 of the domestic garage. From the terminals, walk across the connecting sky-bridges to Level 5 of the Domestic Garage. Please request a ride after you have arrived at the garage.
