Travel Information

By Air

San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland are all about two hours from Modesto. Oakland is the easiest major international airport in terms of traffic. Sacramento is closest, but has limited direct flights.

By Train

Modesto is on Amtrak‘s San Joaquins route that connects Sacramento to Bakersfield. Travelers from the East and upper Midwest can reach Sacramento via the California Zephyr. Those from the South and Southwest can take the Texas Eagle, Sunset Limited, or Southwest Chief to Los Angeles and then either catch the Coast Starlight to the Bay Area or hop a flight.
