Getting to PortFest! 
Take the train and shuttle to the Port of Redwood City for the free public PortFest festival. View FREE PortFest Shuttle schedule here. The 2015 Shuttle schedule is posted.  Look for the sandwich sign that says "PortFest Shuttle Stop".  It will be stationed next to the taxi pick-up area on the sidewalk of Winslow St. (Southbound train travelers will need to cross over the tracks at the designated crossing to get to the shuttle stop.)

If you drive to PortFest, take Seaport Blvd. east over highway 101. Stay in the left lane!  Turn left at Seaport Court (3rd light).  Parking is free. 

If you bike to PortFest, here is the recommended route from the downtown Redwood City Caltrain station.  Follow the green path indicated on the map shown here:  Bike route to PortFest
