The Berkely Lab page for visitors with the links to maps, site access, parking, shuttle, etc. can be found here:


Transportation and Site Access

All registered attendees will be provided with site access authorizations.  Due to construction and other issues, parking is extremely limited at LBNL. We encourage carpooling, using a taxi or taking the LBNL Shuttle.

Note that in order to board the LBNL shuttle at off-site locations, a printed pass is required. These will be made available to registered participants prior to the meeting. There are several shuttle stops around Berkeley, including one next to downtown Berkeley BART, with service every 10­-15 minutes. Details of the shuttle service and routes are available from the link below.

All guests staying onsite at the Berkeley Lab Guest House (BLGH) will be provided parking in Lot Z located across the street from the BLGH.

For special site access needs, please contact Korie Levitan at 510-486-6019 or
