Whether you bring your own food, order something delicious from the nearby Presidio Pop Up food trucks, or grab something from Il Parco, these tables offer an unbeatable place to enjoy a meal with a Golden Gate Bridge view.

Located just north of Presidio Transit Center (hence the name!) right across from Presidio Visitor Center, the six large tables here are available on a first-come, first-served basis and offer companion seating. Please note that Picnic at Transit does not feature grills.
