Soccer fans around the globe have their eyes fixated on Russia for the FIFA World Cup, but a big match in its own right will be played locally on Saturday, June 30 at Stanford Stadium. The annual California Clasico returns to Stanford and Caltrain is ready to take San Jose Earthquakes and LA Galaxy fans to Palo Alto.
Supporters of both Major League Soccer teams can bypass traffic and parking fees by electing to ride Caltrain to the Stanford Station, which is a short walk away from the stadium.
Kickoff is set for 6:45 p.m. and stadium gates open at 5 p.m. Several trains will make special stops at the Stanford Station. Northbound trains 431, 433 and 435 and Southbound trains 430, 432 and 434 will get you there. After the game, fans can catch Northbound trains 439, 441 and 443 and Southbound trains 438 and 440.
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. Clipper users will be able to tag on and off at the Stanford Station. Caltrain staff will be at the station to assist riders with tagging their Clipper cards.
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 not allowed on game day 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 limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed 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 corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
