Stanford Stadium hosts an intrastate rivalry this Saturday, June 29, as the San Jose Earthquakes face off against the LA Galaxy, and Caltrain is there to deliver fans to the pitch.
The 2019 California Clasico kicks off at 6:30 p.m, and fans looking to avoid traffic can catch Caltrain and ride to the Stanford Station, located right next to Stanford Stadium. Caltrain will operate on its Saturday schedule, with northbound trains 431, 433, 435, 439, 441 and 443 and southbound trains 430, 432, 434, 438 and 440 stopping at the Stanford Station before and after the game.

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. 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.
