Although Fremont has had the status of a city only since 1956, it has a long history as a missionary city, a delivery center for gold diggers, a film location and a place to rest. In 1797, Spanish priests and indigenous Ohlones set up a mission in this area. The city was founded in cooperation with various communities. Charlie Chaplin filmed The Tramp here in 1915.
Fremont borders Milpitas to the south, Union City to the north and completely surrounds the small town of Newark.
From Oakland Airport, Fremont is about 20 minutes away (depending on the time of day) via Interstate 880. Alternatively, you can take the shuttle to the BART station, where trains run to Fremont.
From San José Airport, you can reach the city in about half an hour either via Interstate 880 or Interstate 680. However, in the course of professional transport, it is advisable to anticipate significantly longer driving times.
Finally, there is the San Francisco airport, which can be reached via the US 101 and the State Route 84 (Dumbarton Bridge) Fremont. This airport is the worst developed in terms of traffic and is also the most frequently delayed. You should avoid the airport if there are alternatives to Oakland or San José. However, there is a bus station at the airport from which you can reach Fremont by train.
The BART system offers a public SPNV in the Bay Area that has its southern end in Fremont. There is one line running from Richmond or Daly City to Oakland and then to Fremont. By changing north of Daly City (Balboa Park and Bay Fair are changing points) it is also possible to get to Fremont from Millbrae and San Francisco Airport with BART. BART also opens the Bay Area to the north-east (Pittsburg/Bay Point) and the east (Dublin/Pleasanton).
Amtrak takes the Capitol from Sacramento via Fremont to San José. However, the long-distance trains from other states only go to Sacramento, where there is a possibility to transfer to the Capitol.
The Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) also stops in Fremont. The train service, designed for professional commuters, runs from the east of the Bay Area to the Silicon Valley. However, this offer is not particularly suitable for tourists, as there are connections only three times a day from Fremont to Silicon Valley and also three times a night.
