Caltrain Delivers Soccer Fans to Gold Cup Final

Caltrain Delivers Soccer Fans to Gold Cup Final

 

Levi’s Stadium will host the U.S. and Jamaica for the 2017 Gold Cup Final at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, and Caltrain will be on-hand to get devoted fans to the game.

The U.S. Men’s National Team is out for revenge after losing to Jamaica in the Gold Cup semifinals two years ago, and is on a strong streak having defeated El Salvador and Costa Rica 2-0 in their last two games. Jamaica pulled out a 1-0 win over Mexico in the semifinals and will no doubt be a tough contender.

Fans can take Caltrain to the Santa Clara Station, and catch ACE to Levi’s Stadium, or can catch the VTA 902 from the Mountain View Station.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at vending machines at the stations. To save time on the return trip, passengers are encouraged to buy a Day Pass. Clipper card users (cash value and 8-ride tickets) are reminded to tag on and tag off.

Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and to remember that open containers of alcohol are not allowed on trains after 9 p.m. following special events.

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain has enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
