Getting to Stanford

Visitors to conferences and events: We recommend that you take public transportation. From the Palo Alto Transit Center / Caltrain station, you can board the Stanford Marguerite Shuttle, which is the University’s free shuttle bus. Take the "P" shuttle from Palo Alto Station to the Stanford Oval. After departing shuttle, continue west on Jane Stanford Way, then south on Lomita Mall. Varian is the 2nd building on the right. 

The nearest visitor parking is at Roble Field Garage or Via Ortega Garage. All visitor parking payments are contactless and managed through ParkMobile. See instructions at the Stanford Transportation website.
