Thursday, November 9, AT&T Park will host Band Together Bay Area, a benefit concert for North Bay Fire recovery. Metallica, G-Eazy, Rancid, Dave Matthews, Dead & Company and Raphael Saadiq will be providing the music, while Caltrain is on hand to deliver the audience.

Open alcoholic beverage containers are not allowed onboard trains starting at 9 p.m.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased at station ticket machines. 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 limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 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 system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
