Caltrain is the way to go to San Francisco Opera at AT&T Park

Experience a true San Francisco treat by taking Caltrain to the San Francisco Opera at AT&T Park this Friday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Opera lovers can ride Caltrain to the park on the regular weekday schedule, which offers plenty of northbound and southbound services to and from the park. Caltrain will be operating one additional southbound train departing San Francisco 25 minutes after the event or when full.

Caltrain’s San Francisco station, located at Fourth and King streets, is just a short walk away from AT&T Park which make it easy to attend this free simulcast live event from the War Memorial Opera House. This event is provided by San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Giants. Fans attending can choose to sit on the field or in the stands. Reservations are required. Visit sfopera.com/simulcast for more information.

Crowds of 30,000 are anticipated and parking can be a challenge and costly. Ride Caltrain to get to the park hassle-free and enjoy a night under the stars.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system: tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Riders are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines after events. The pass is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train. Clipper card users are reminded to tag on and tag off.

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.

To help make it a pleasant trip for all, Caltrain reminds riders to drink responsibly and to remember that open alcoholic beverages are prohibited on trains departing from San Francisco beginning at 9 p.m. after events.

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 60,000 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.
