Take Caltrain to Giants Home Opener Series at Oracle Park

Take Caltrain to Giants Home Opener Series at Oracle Park


The San Francisco Giants begin the home portion of their 61st season in San Francisco with a three-game interleague series against the Tampa Bay Rays, and Caltrain is ready to get you to and from Oracle Park.

The home opener is set for Friday, April 5, at 1:35 p.m. Caltrain will run two extra pre-game local trains that will depart San Jose Diridon Station at 10 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. These trains, labeled with “6” in the schedule, make all local weekday stops to the San Francisco Station. The regular weekday schedule offers plenty of southbound service after the game and the station is just one-block away from the ballpark. 

Games 2 and 3 are the following Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7, at 1:05 p.m. Following this week’s restoration of regular weekend train service, fans can once again ride Caltrain into San Francisco Station on the new weekend schedule. Caltrain will run two extra pre-game trains departing San Jose Diridon Station at 9:41 a.m. and 10:28 a.m. The first train will provide express service to San Francisco and the second will make all local stops.

Caltrain will also run two post-game trains that depart San Francisco approximately 15 and 25 minutes after the last out, or when full. This new weekend post-game service for the 2019 Giants season will provide express southbound service to the Millbrae Station before making all weekend local stops to San Jose Diridon.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines. To save time on the return trip, passengers are encouraged to buy a Day Pass or utilize the new Caltrain mobile app. 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 fans to drink responsibly and to remember that open alcoholic beverages are prohibited on trains beginning at 9 p.m.
