SJC to San Francisco travel options...

So, I'm due to travel to San Francisco tomorrow from Toronto, via San Jose. I was planning to get to my hotel in San Fran using Caltrain, but lucky me, my flight's been changed to one later in the evening and I don't think there's any conceivable way I'll be able to catch the last train from Santa Clara. Any tips on how I might be able to get from SJC to SoMa in San Francisco without spending an arm and a leg?

I've seen Supershuttle and the like quoting fares of $70-80 or so per trip. Will they charge less if it turns out that other people share the ride? Are there likely to be other people traveling at 11 PM?

Call you airline and ask them to put you on an earlier flight.

If you have enough time you could take a cab to Fremont BART and take BART into SF. It looks like the last train that leaves Fremont that will connect you to SF leaves at 11:39, but I would double check.

Perhaps it could be something to TaskRabbit out? Not sure if the price would be less than SuperShuttle, though.

Well, I'll be damned, the airline actually changed my flight to SFO without any extra charge. I was seriously not expecting _that_ to happen. Thanks for the suggestions, folks!

For future reference, "airporter" shuttle vans generally cost about $35 from San Jose to San Francisco.
