Following a record day for Saturday ridership, yesterday, Caltrain rolled out its special Super Bowl schedule for today’s Big Game. Caltrain carried nearly 5,000 pre-game trips to the Mountain View Station.
Customers were able to make an easy connection to VTA’s Light Rail trains, which took them to Levi’s Stadium. Both systems worked closely throughout the planning effort to communicate with customers and out-of-towners to be sure game day riders made it to the game safely and on time.
Caltrain’s fleet operated on schedule throughout the morning.
Caltrain’s game day performance comes the day after the system served more than 15,000 trips between events in San Francisco and Santa Clara on Saturday, Feb. 6. To accommodate the significant increase in demand, Caltrain added 13 trains to it’s regular schedule on Saturday.
The system is planning to provide expanded service post-game. With specials lined up to carry Super Bowl fans home as soon as the final down is played.
Please contact Caltrain’s media relations team for updates.
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 earlier this year. 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.
