This page describes the location of our 2169 Mission space that opened August 2009. To find our previous space at 83C Wiese, see Getting Here (83c).

Noisebridge is located on the 3rd floor of 2169 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110-1219, (37.76717 N, 122.418423 W) between 17th and 18th street, 1.5 blocks blocks south of 16th Street Mission BART station. Use the intercom to ask to be buzzed into the space. An elevator with manually-operated doors is available.

If this is your first time here, please review our visitor advice.


Public transit can help plan your travel.

The BART rail system provides service around the San Francisco Bay Area, including connections to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Oakland International Airport (OAK), Caltrain, Muni and Capitol Corridor. The nearest airport is San Francisco International, 25 minutes by BART. BART service runs 4:30am-midnight weekdays, less on weekends.

Getting Here by BART

  • Take the Bart to 16th Street Mission Station
  • Get to street level via either exit
  • Walk 1.5 blocks south on Mission Street
  • Noisebridge is on the left, 2169 Mission, just before "L&M Produce Market"

Getting Here by Muni

San Francisco is served by the Muni bus network. Only some lines run from 1am-5am, so called "Owl" service. Nextbus has real-time bus arrival information. Muni lines that pass particularly close to Noisebridge are:

14 Mission (stops in front of Noisebridge) (24 hour service)
33 Stanyan (stops in front of Noisebridge)
49 Van Ness-Mission (stops in front of Noisebridge)
22 Fillmore (24 hour service; closest stop 16th and Mission)
53 Southern Heights (closest stop 16th and Mission)
26 Valencia (closest stop 18th and Valencia)
12 Folsom (closest stop 18th and Folsom)

Noisebridge is about a 15 minute walk from the Church St Light Rail Muni Station, served by the Muni light rail K, L, M, and T lines underground, and the J, N and F aboveground. (When riding the J Church line, it is closer to exit at the bottom of Dolores Park at 18th and Church rather than at Church and Market. The other Muni light rail lines also connect with BART at Civic Center Station; transferring to BART there may be faster than walking from Church Street.)


See the San Francisco Bike Coalition bike map for bike directions to Noisebridge. Noisebridge can be found in the center-right portion of this map.

Valencia Street, 1 block west of Mission, is an official route of the San Francisco Bicycle Network, with designated bicycle lanes in both directions. For security you should bring your bike upstairs either via the stairs or elevator. Our bike rack has room for at least 14 bikes :-)


Street parking in the area is difficult in the evening, since the 16th and Valencia area is a popular entertainment district. There is some street parking available on Mission and surrounding major streets, mostly metered. There is a commercial parking garage at 42 Hoff Street, about two blocks from Noisebridge. Several BART stations outside of San Francisco city limits also have parking available. San Francisco is famous for car break-ins, you should place all your valuables in the truck of your car.
