San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
SFO is about an hour and a half drive to Livermore. However, if you are planning on visiting San Francisco prior to or after the wedding this airport would be a great option as it’s very close to the city. We also have found that being a much larger airport than Oakland, they tend to have more competitive ticket prices.
Oakland International Airport (OAK)
OAK is about a 45 minute drive to Livermore. It’s a smaller airport and tends to be quite easy to get in and out of. If you are planning on flying in and coming straight to the wedding this airport may be a better option for you.
We recommend renting a car for the weekend if you are looking to explore the Bay Area. Besides the standard rental services that are available at both airports (Enterprise, Avis etc.) there are peer-to-peer car sharing services that are quite popular here, and may be more cost effective. We recommend Getaround (they often have promotion codes/discounts for first time users).
Ground transportation is available as well as pubic transit. Driver services like Uber,or a local favorite, Lyft are available as well as our regional rail service BART. BART will take you anywhere you want to go (from SFO or OAK airports directly to San Francisco and the surrounding cities, including Livermore).
