It may not be a battle of the Bay anymore, but this Sunday, August 29, the San Francisco 49ers take on the Las Vegas Raiders, and Caltrain, in partnership with BART and VTA, is still the best way to get to Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium and watch that pigskin fly. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Caltrain will be operating its regular weekend service along the Peninsula.
From the Mountain View station, fans will be able to board Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) light-rail for continuing service to the stadium.
Following the game, Caltrain’s northbound trains will depart Mountain View once per hour. Trains will make all weekend local stops (including Broadway station) to San Francisco.
Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system. Tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines. In order to avoid the long lines that often accompany major events, passengers are encouraged to buy a Day Pass or use the Caltrain Mobile ticketing app. On game day, riders can also purchase a Joint Caltrain+VTA Day Pass on the mobile app or at a ticket machine that will cover you on Caltrain until the last train and on VTA local buses and light rail until 3 a.m.
Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and that open alcoholic beverages are prohibited on the trains beginning at 9 p.m. on special event days and nights. Food and beverage aren’t allowed on VTA.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased using the Caltrain mobile app or 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 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.
