I personally have taken the Smart Train to San Francisco and it was simple, almost as quick as driving (and a whole lot cheaper and without the parking hassles) and was a great way to see the bridges and an amazing view of the city. I would recommend taking the train before 10 am to be able to maximize your time in the city.
