CounterPULSE is located just west of the corner of 9th Street and Mission, at 1310 Mission Street (north side of Mission Street) in San Francisco.

Here are some directions


Riding a bike is the easiest way to get to CounterPULSE. Unfortunately we don’t have space indoor bike parking, but we do have a number of garages nearby that have bike parking. Locking to parking meters on our block is also a possibility, though not the most secure. You can also lock your bike inside the paid BART area at the east end of the Civic Center BART station if you so choose.


Civic Center station, exit at 8th and Market, walk one block west to 9th, turn left (south) and walk one block to Mission, and then 20 feet right (west) to our front door.


The 14 and 26 run directly in front and we are just a one block walk from Market Street where countless MUNI lines run. For directions from the J, K, L, M, N, see BART above.


Most Golden Gate Transit buses arriving from Marin and Sonoma counties turn at 8th Street and Mission. We are one block west of that corner.


Routes MX and DX go down Mission and stop within a short walk of our front door.


  • from the East Bay

    Take the Bay Bridge to the 9th Street/Civic Center exit. Drive north on 9th Street until you reach Mission. We are just off the corner of this intersection.

  • from the Peninsula

    Take 101 north to 7th Street exit, proceed north to Howard Street, turn left two blocks to 9th, and then right to Mission.

  • from Marin and points north

    Take Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard, Van Ness to Civic Center. Turn left from Van Ness onto Fell Street, cross Market, and proceed one block to Mission. Turn left on Mission and we are at the other end of that block.


For full-day parking, there is a $10 lot on the corner of 10th and Mission. For shorter visits, the Civic Center municipal garage under the Civic Center Plaza can be accessed by continuing north on 9th Street, across Market onto Larkin, turn left on McAllister, and then U-turn before Polk into the garage entrance. There are a number of meters in our neighborhood, but beware of the 4-6 p.m. TOWAWAY time… Park on a meter along 9th between Howard and Mission if you can. Street parking after 6pm and on Sundays is free and generally plentiful. There is also free 1-hour parking along the smaller alley streets around mission street… happy hunting!
