Take Caltrain to Outside Lands in San Francisco


The Outside Lands Festival returns to Golden Gate Park on Friday, October 29, through Sunday, October 31, and Caltrain is there to help attendees get up the Peninsula to see Tame Impala, Lizzo, The Strokes, Tyler, the Creator, Vampire Weekend and a host of other musical acts.

Caltrain has northbound weekday and weekend service to the San Francisco Station at 4th and King streets. From there, festival-goers can make their way toward Golden Gate Park by hopping onto Muni’s N-Judah line and walking seven minutes towards the park. The last train will depart at 12:05 a.m. on all three nights.  

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system. Tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines. Riders that wish to use contactless payment can use either Caltrain mobile app or a Clipper card, which can now be purchased at a Ticket Vending Machine at the San Jose, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Millbrae and San Francisco Stations.

Caltrain advises that everyone respect public health orders, wear a face covering in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Caltrain reminds customers to drink responsibly and to remember that open alcoholic beverages are prohibited on trains beginning at 9 p.m.

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.
