OAK - signage in the lot was poor, car was fine. In SFO the dropoff has changed, but the signage has not kept up - all large signs indicate the second floor, which is now closed. A tiny sign at the entrance indicates first floor, but that was not clear on the approach or in the orientation materials. Lucky I left extra time
