San Francisco is a functioning city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during the summer and at weekends.
Don’t forget to arrive at least 30 minutes before your departure times to avoid getting caught in any last minute delays.
Wheelchairs can be collapsed down and stored on the bus but the buses are not equipped with ramps and therefore passengers would need to walk up 2 steps.
The California Academy of Sciences ticket is an open ticket and can be used a few days prior or a few days after the bus tour, as well.
The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.
