We get out there often and find walking from Terminal 1 through the international and getting the train to the rental center is much faster than crossing under the driveway, climbing the stairs to the station and then the escalator, plus gets us a chance to walk a distance. Love SFO!

Quoting Boston92 (Reply 1): I know there is a bus that runs the domestic to intl terminals.
Quoting Flypdx (Reply 5): Did United stop running the bus service from Their domestic ops to their international operations? A little over a year ago, I believe that a bus was running for those who had connections.
If there is any bus, is there one that is for non-United connections-between the AA area of T3 and the int'l terminal for example?
The sky is the limit as long as you can stay there

The bus that connects with UA's domestic terminal (NOT AA's - you would end up leaving the E Concourse security and then re-ntering the F Concourse security, so why not just renter at the International Terminal?) with both the G Concourse (UA, LH, NZ, SQ) of the International Terminal AND with the US/HP Operation in Terminal 1 operates from around 8am till just before the SYD evening flight (say 10PM or so). I also use it when flying UA domestically and I have time to kill and want to spend it in the SQ lounge (I have to show your UA ticket and your SQ lounge card to the door keeper to get on the bus.)
SFO is currently building a connector that they say should be up and running by the end of the year so you can walk it.
Also, you can not get between the two International concouses without reclearing security.

Actually, the way E and F concourses are set up, once past security, you can walk from E to F or vice versa without passing through security again. This is why I cannot understand why people complain about the poor restaurant facilities at the AA concourse. All you have to do after passing through the F security is to make a quick left and you will enter the UA concourse where there are restaurants galore.
As for the bus, I don't think you can take the bus if you are not holding a UA or possible Star Alliance ticket.
