The Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto is located at 505 East Charleston Road in Palo Alto, CA (near Middlefield Road). We are close to the San Antonio Road exit of US Highway 101, and a short distance from Alma Street.

Note: The driving directions on commercial map programs (Google, Yahoo!, Mapquest, etc.) are not as easy to follow as the directions given below.

By Bicycle

We have brand-new bike racks that accommodate 20 bicycles.  Join the many people who get to UUCPA by bike each Sunday!

By Public Transportation

The #35 bus runs every half-hour on weekdays and Saturdays and every hour on Sundays, and stops at the corner of Middlefield and Charleston, one block from the church.  For schedule details, go to   http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_35.html .

The #22 bus runs frequently on El Camino.  From the Charleston/Arastradero stop, it is a .9 mile walk northeast on Charleston to UUCPA.  (~15 minutes walk – you are about halfway when you cross Alma St.)

The nearest Caltrain station is the San Antonio station.  From there you can take the #35 bus (see above), or a pleasant 1.7 mile bike ride or walk through the Greenmeadow neighborhood.  For Caltrain schedule details, go tohttp://www.caltrain.com/timetable.html .  You can also catch the #35 bus from the downtown Palo Alto Caltrain Station.
