You can use a shuttle service (there are several, look them up here), but you'll have to pay more for excessive baggage. For two with such a baggage it may be over $100. It would probably be cheaper to just rent a car for a day. You can drive it from SFO to San Jose, and then return it at SJC airport (which is very close to the San Jose downtown). Your ...

City of Mountain View, CA, has no street meters that I know of, so, all parking is free, even covered parking! When visiting the downtown at Castro St, there is some street parking right on Castro St, as well as several parking lots, and even two several-story parking structures (on the west side of Castro St), all free. Generally, there is a limit on ...

What's quickest will depend on exactly when you want to leave, but as a rough idea BART + CalTrain is likely to be simplest (even if bus/buses might be faster depending on your exact arrival time) For the CalTrain down to Mountain View, you have a few trains an hour in the week (more in peak hours). Most of these stop at Millbrae, a few stop at San Bruno. ...

There's a lot of street meter parking in San Jose, CA, and a couple of garage structures with entrance tickets. Parking in the garage could be expensive, but many businesses do validation of certain garage parking, and thus you can often park for free if you're willing to purchase something in a participating nearby business: Safeway in downtown has an ...

You could take the BART (Pittsburg/Bay Point–SFO/Millbrae line) from SFO to Millbrae and catch the Caltrain from there to San Jose. Here's a BART system map: And a Caltrain system map: The next cheapest option might be a SuperShuttle.

If your hotel is in downtown, you could try BART to Millbrae and transfer to Caltrain. It is cheaper, and many (but not all) Caltrain train sets have a luggage rack in the middle car. It will be up to you to decide if you can handle getting all the bags onto the train I second the idea of a one-way car rental rather than a taxi. Have one person take ...

Some general advice that might apply anywhere, except that in general a suit is "fail safe" and I think for the bay area you should aim for something less formal: Be sure you are comfortable with what you choose (you want to exude confidence and not be distracted in any way by something as mundane as clothing). If in doubt, dress casual. As a traveller ...

Although I'm not living there now, I spent 25 years in the Bay Area. Although in a number of companies like Google and Facebook, I am sure there are lots of programmers wearing T-shirts and jeans, I think it would be safer to wear chinos/khakis and either a polo shirt or a buttoned shirt, but probably not white. With latter, I would think a sweater would ...

I mainly agree with @pnuts answer but feel that points 2 (dress casual) and 6 (jacket, white shirt, and chinos/black jeans) are in conflict. So some things to think about Because you are not going there for training only, but to meet other software engineers and foster a stronger relationship between the two companies, I believe you should dress in business ...
