Take Caltrain to San Jose Sharks Home Opener
The San Jose Sharks are BACK! With the season already off to a strong start, it looks like it was worth the wait. Caltrain will be serving all Sharks home games at HP Pavilion. The Sharks home opener is against the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m.
With its San Jose terminal located across the street from the hockey arena, Caltrain service makes it easy to avoid the hassle and expense of driving and parking. A number of trains arrive from San Francisco and the Peninsula in time for the face-off. The last weekday and Saturday northbound train departs the San Jose station at 10:30 p.m. or may depart up to 15 minutes later if the game is still underway. The train makes all regular local stops. Trains stop at the Broadway and Atherton stations on weekends only.
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, fans are encouraged to buy a Day Pass. Clipper card users (e-cash and 8-ride tickets) are reminded to tag on and tag off.
Open alcoholic beverage containers are not allowed onboard trains starting at 9 p.m.
