The School of Medicine is on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, California. San Francisco is to the north, and San Jose is to the south. Two main north-south freeways link us to San Francisco, San Jose, and their airports: Interstate 280 and US Highway 101. Shuttle and bus service to Stanford is available from nearby airports. A commuter rail line, Caltrain also connects the Peninsula. Stanford's free Marguerite Shuttle connects with Caltrain and downtown Palo Alto.
