Take Caltrain to Giants Home Opener at AT&T Park

Fresh-cut grass, crack of the bat and the cheers of fans at the stadium are right around the corner for the San Francisco Giants when they face off against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, April 10 at 1:35 p.m., the Home Opener at AT&T Park.

Fans 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 two additional Special Events local trains at 10 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. departing from the San Jose Diridon Station during Pre-Event Service making all local stops to San Francisco. Post-Event services will coincide with the regular P.M. weekday schedule commute and extra capacity will be provided. Caltrain’s San Francisco station, located on Fourth and King streets, is just one block from AT&T Park.

This season has started off with a bang as Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner hit two home runs against the Diamondbacks in their season opener at Chase Field in Arizona, an impressive accomplishment for a pitcher. Giants’ fans can continue to enjoy the competition against the D-backs in the upcoming three game series.
