Top Tips For Renting a Car in Fremont

  • As a safe and quiet suburb, Fremont is a great place to be based not only when visiting San Francisco but also the whole of the Bay Area, especially when you have a rental car. But the city is a gem on its own right, so make sure to drive to popular attractions such as the Great Mall of the Bay Area, around 12 miles from the city center. For a natural escapade, head to Muir Woods, only 40 miles away.
  • The two closest airports to Fremont are San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). The Rental Car Center at SJC is located just across from the Terminal B exit. Passengers at Terminal A can take the blue shuttle all the way there. The Rental Car Center at OAK is at the airport’s North Field, and there is a shuttle bus operating between the facility and all the terminals.
  • Fremont’s geography is mainly defined by the hills on the east side and the bay on the west, but most of the city is concentrated on the bay side, which is easier to drive and navigate. Mission Boulevard is one of the main streets, and is one to avoid driving through if you don’t want to face crowds. Fremont is also a good introduction to driving in San Francisco’s famous hills.
  • While San Francisco may really struggle when it comes to traffic congestion, Fremont is more manageable. Still, it’s best to avoid both the morning rush hour (7:30-9 a.m.) and the evening rush hour (3:30-7 p.m.) in order to skip the worst traffic. The I-880 route to both Oakland Airport and San Jose Airport gets pretty crowded during peak hour, with travel times often doubling.

There are also parking garages and lots scattered around Fremont’s center, including the Fremont Hub Shopping Center and Fremont Library Parking.
