Shuttles and Transportation:

The hackathon will be held at Facebook Building 15 (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025). You won’t be able to take the rideshare or drive your car directly to this location. First, you would need to take your rideshare or park your car at Facebook Building 41. From there, you’ll get picked up by the Facebook shuttle to Building 14 where you’ll check in and get escorted to the event location, Son of Ping and Pong - Building 15. The shuttle will run from 7:30AM to 9:30AM, every 15 minutes. 

Uber/Lyft: If you are taking a rideshare, type in “Facebook Building 41” in as your drop-off location and select it. If the app shows the drop-down menu, choose “Willow Campus” and “MPK 41”.  See the attachment titled, “Rideshare Directions”. 

Driving: Type Facebook Building 41 in the navigation. Detailed driving directions are included in the attachment titled, “Driving Directions”.

You can stay overnight at the hackathon venue. If you want to leave and come back the next day, you can hop on shuttles that will take you to Facebook Building 41. They will run from 8PM to 10PM.
