The N-Judah Muni Metro streetcar, which is wheelchair-accessible, stops at 9th Avenue and Irving Street. To reach the Academy, travel north on 9th Avenue into Golden Gate Park. Ninth Avenue becomes Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.—keep going until you reach Music Concourse Drive, then turn right and continue to the Academy's entrance. This half-mile walk takes approximately 10 minutes; if you prefer not to walk, you may also transfer to the 44-O’Shaughnessy bus at 9th and Irving and ride to the Academy stop on Music Concourse Drive

The #5-Fulton bus stops at 8th Avenue and Fulton Street, just outside the park. From 8th Avenue, walk into the park and turn right on John F. Kennedy Drive. Then turn left onto Music Concourse Drive.
