By Public Transit

The Marguerite Shuttle is a free Stanford Transportation service within the campus. The Marguerite schedules are posted on bus stop posts. The Marguerite schedule is also available online here. The Marguerite Shuttle provides frequent service to the Medical Center from the Palo Alto Caltrain station at University Avenue via Line X and Line MC.

If riding Caltrain, get off at the Palo Alto station at University Avenue.

Line X and Line MC both go to the Medical Center. Line X and its variants (Line X-L, Line X-EXP) generally stop near the Emergency Department at the Stanford Hospital (at the back of the hospital building). From there, you can walk to MSOB in about 5 minutes.

Line MC stops closer to the MSOB building, stopping on Welch Road between Oak Road and Pasteur Drive in the morning or evening, and then stopping closer to the front of the main Stanford Hospital in the middle of the day. All of these stops are within a few minutes’ walk to MSOB.
