Part of the Python Community Spirit is making knowledge, and access to the community available to everyone who needs it. If you live far away from Petaluma and need help getting here, we want to help out.
 
  Chances are you're probably not in Petaluma, so if you want to come to North Bay Python, then you'll need to get here somehow. The good news is that it's reasonably easy to get here, whether you're coming from Sonoma County, elsewhere in the Bay Area, or from further out of town.

<h2>What we'll cover</h2>
 
<h2>By Car</h2>
 

	
 
<p>If you're driving up, Downtown Petaluma is at exit 472A on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 

	
 
<p>All parking is free in Petaluma, however near the Mystic, street-level parking is time-limited. All-day parking is available at street level west of 5th St (towards 6th St), and at the the undercover garages at <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Keller+Street+Parking+Garage">Keller St</a> and at Theatre Square. Both garages are in short walking distance of the Mystic.</p>
 

	
 

	
 
<h2>By Public Transit</h2>
 

	
 
<p>Public transit to Petaluma is currently not great.</p>
 

	
 
<p>You can take the <a href="http://goldengatetransit.org/schedules/current/route_101.php">101 bus operated by Golden Gate Transit</a> from downtown San Francisco, or south from Santa Rosa. Depending on sponsorship, we hope to run a free shuttle with BART and Caltrain connections for people from further out of town.</p>
 

	
 
<p><a href="https://sonomamarintrain.org">SMART</a>, the new train service that runs along the 101 corridor, recently started operations. SMART is not suitable for getting to North Bay Python if you travel on weekends, as the first train leaves after proceedings start. SMART may be a better option than taking the bus between San Rafael and Petaluma if you travel up on weekdays.</p>
 

	
 

	
 
<p>Our mission is to provide an accessible Python conference to everyone in Northern California. We understand that some people will need to travel for 2 or more hours to get to Petaluma, and that the costs of transport and lodging can add up. Our grants are intended to make your weekend at North Bay Python cost about as much as a weekend at home would cost.</p>
 
<h2>By Plane</h2>
 

	
 
<p>If you're selected to receive financial aid, we'll cover the following for you:</p>
 
<p>Petaluma is within driving distance of all Bay Area Airports, and each airport has varying levels of public transit links to Petaluma.</p>
 

	
 
<ul>
 
  <li><strong>Ground transportation</strong>, up to $70 return: including public transit, including reasonable cab/rideshare fares between the venue and accommodation in Petaluma.</li>
 
  <li><strong>Accommodation subsidy</strong>, up to $80 per night, for up to three nights.</li>
 
  <li><strong>Free ticket</strong> to the conference.</li>
 
</ul>
 
<h4>Sonoma County Airport (STS) <small>25mi from venue</small></h4>
 

	
 
<p>These subsidies are designed to make the conference affordable, no matter where you live in Northern California. You are still eligible even if you don't live close to Petaluma, however, we will not subsidise the cost of flights.</p>
 
<p>STS is 30 minutes out of Petaluma, and has nonstop flights to most major west coast cities on Alaska, United, and American.</p>
 

	
 
<h2>Apply</h2>
 
<p>On weekdays and weekend afternoons, <a href="https://sonomamarintrain.org">SMART train</a> runs from STS to Downtown Petaluma Station, 1/4mi away from the North Bay Python venue. STS is also serviced by the <a href="http://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">Sonoma County Airport Express</a> bus.</p>
 

	
 
 <p>To apply, please <a href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1SSzTFHWCpb_PcEyOTwZ9JhDyJxS8CH8-aiCO3DUQCiU/edit">fill out the application form</a>.</p>
 
<h4>San Francisco International (SFO)/Oakland International (OAK) <small>50mi from venue</small></h4>
 

	
 
 <p><strong>Applications will be assessed every Friday, starting November 10th</strong> until November 24th, or our budget is exhausted, whichever comes first. To increase your chances of getting accepted, <strong>please apply as soon as possible.</strong></p>
 
<p>If you can't make it to STS, you can also try San Francisco (SFO) or Oakland (OAK) international airports. These have many more flights than STS, but are twice the distance away, and are subject to more highway traffic between the airport and Petaluma.</p>
 

	
 
 <h3>Applicatiom information</h3>
 
<p>Transfers to Petaluma are available through the <a href="http://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">Sonoma County Airport Express</a>.</p>
 

	
 
 <p>In the application, you'll need to tell us the following:</p>
 
<h4>San Jose International (SJC)/Sacramento (SMF) <small>85mi from venue</small></h4>
 

	
 
 <ul>
 
   <li>Your name</li>
 
   <li>Your company/organization</li>
 
   <li>Why you want to come to North Bay Python</li>
 
   <li>Where you're traveling from</li>
 
 </ul>
 
<p>If you're planning on renting a car, San Jose (SJC) or Sacramento (SMF) are both two hours drive away.</p>
 

	
 
<p>The form shouldn't take more than 10 minutes for you to fill out.</p>
 
<h4>Petaluma Municipal <small>3mi from venue</small></h4>
 

	
 
<p>If you happen to have an aircraft of your own, Petaluma Municipal Airport is 3 miles down the road.</p>
