I need to get from San Jose to north SF by 9:30 AM on a Sunday, and won't be able to drive there. Unfortunately, the earliest Caltrain on Sunday doesn't get to the SF station until 9:36 AM, and it'll take over an additional half an hour for me to ride the bus from the station to my destination. Is there a quicker/less costly/more convenient way for me to get from San Jose to San Francisco on time than to ride a bus all the way? Thanks!

SFdude :
"Those who're stranded by Caltrain can always take the bus over to BART. The system is designed specifically for that. VTA Bus #180 to the Fremont BART station (arrives 8:07 AM) departs from the following locations: San Jose Diridon Caltrain Station 7:21a 1st & Santa Clara 7:26a Civic Center VTA Light Rail Station 7:33a Great Mall of the Bay Area Transit Center 7:43a From Fremont station, board a Richmond bound train (8:15 AM) to BayFair (8:33 AM). Transfer at BayFair (8:45 AM) to a Millbrae bound train. You'll arrive at the four Downtown San Francisco stations between 9:12 AM and 9:17 AM. The fare is $3.50 VTA + $5.25 BART = $8.75 one-way"

I am going to buy a rental property for investment (a Condo, in the range of $150,000 to $250,000). I am not familiar with San Jose area. Could any one tell me what are the best neighborhoods and/or which neighborhoods should I avoid in San Jose?

"I moved from Almaden Valley in San Jose to Arizona a few months ago. I don't like California in general. Everything is overpriced and every city is overcrowded. Almaden Valley in San Jose is expensive comparing to the rest of San Jose and has the best schools, but you will never find condos in that price range. Don't buy an investment property somewhere you are not familiar with."
