Take Caltrain to ‘Battle of the Bay’ Exhibition Games at AT&T Park

The San Francisco Giants are returning home for two final pre-season games in preparation for their 60th season in San Francisco, and Caltrain wants to help get you there.

The Giants will face off against their cross-Bay rival, the Oakland Athletics, on Monday, March 26, and Tuesday, March 27, beginning at 7:15 p.m. and 6:05 p.m., respectively

Fans can ride Caltrain to the San Francisco Station on the regular weekday schedule, which offers plenty of northbound and southbound services to and from the ballpark. The station is a short walk from AT&T Park.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at vending machines at the stations. 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 departing from San Francisco beginning at 9 p.m. on game days.

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.
