Weekend SF Caltrain Closure

Caltrain’s San Francisco tunnel construction, which is needed for the electrification of Caltrain, is in progress. Regular weekend train service to all San Francisco stations will be restored after April 1, 2019, with the following exceptions*:

  • Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21 Work cancelled. Expect regular service.

Free bus service will replace train service between Bayshore and San Francisco stations during all San Francisco service closures. Buses are ADA accessible and will have limited capacity for luggage and bikes onboard.

The work has been scheduled around the SF Giants season and major events so as to minimize inconvenience to our riders.
