Top tips for renting a car in Sunnyvale

  • Sunnyvale, though it has much in the way of commuter public transportation, lacks public transportation within the city itself. Because of this, it is highly recommended that visitors rent a vehicle during their time in the city. This is especially the case if you plan on visiting some of the natural scenery outside of town, like Baylands Park, during your time in Sunnyvale.
  • The Bay Area has many airports to choose from. If you are arriving at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport, the rental car counters are located in the Rental Car Center across from Terminal B. At San Francisco International Airport, the rental car desks are found at the Rental Car Center located on the airport’s AirTrain Blue Line. As for Oakland International Airport, shuttle buses are available at all terminals to take passengers to the designated Rental Center.
  • Due to its largely suburban nature, it is very normal to see plenty of pedestrians and bicyclists wantonly crossing roads and jaywalking in Sunnyvale. This is especially the case during the warmer parts of the year and during afternoon hours. Drivers should be cautious and on the lookout for potential jaywalkers and keep them in mind when navigating Sunnyvale.
  • Rush hour in Sunnyvale, while not as bad as neighboring San Francisco, is worth avoiding at its peak hours. The morning rush hour starts around 6:00 a.m. and goes until 9:00 a.m, while the afternoon rush hour goes from around 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. As for roads to avoid during rush hour in Sunnyvale, US-101 and I-280 are the two main culprits for rush hour traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Sunnyvale at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Additionally, parking is a simple affair in the city, as the spots are large and suitable for all vehicles. However, if Sunnyvale is just the beginning of your journey in California, you might want a lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicle as gas in the Golden State doesn’t come cheap.

  • Neighborhoods and residential areas in Sunnyvale have speed limits of 25 to 35 mph, while on proper city roads the speed limit goes up to 50 mph. Rural roads and motorways outside of the city range from 50 to 65 mph and interstates can get up to 70 mph.

  • If you are in the main downtown area of Sunnyvale, then parking garages are your best bet for finding a guaranteed spot. There are a number of parking garages throughout the city and are often conveniently located near public transport for commuters. Parking garages are also affordable, with many of the garages being public and thus free to use. If you are in the residential parts of town, you may find on-street parking to be more convenient as spots are readily available.
