What is the correct line to take from SFO airport to Powell St. Station? My map shows Dublin/Pleasanton as a direct route. The BART page shows Pittsburg/Bay Point as the correct line to take. I am wondering if there is a transfer involved? What is the quickest way to get to Fisherman's Wharf from Powell St. station area, cable car or public bus? Any insight most appreciated.

I don't think that the Dublin train goes all the way to the airport. I recall (and the BART website seems to confirm) that it only goes as far as Daly City.

Any train you catch from the airport will go to Powell Street.

I love walking in San Francisco. I would suggest that as a way to get to the Fisherman's wharf.

Walking from Powell Street BART to Fisherman's wharf is 40 blocks over gigantically steep hills--this guy must be a marathon man.

I suggest either a taxi--or if you want adventure--there is a cable car line that runs directly from Market street at Powell up to Fisherman's Wharf. There might have to wait in a line on the weekend or in the summer months.
