Ride Caltrain to NHL Playoff Game San Jose Sharks vs. Edmonton Oilers

NHL Western Conference Champions the San Jose Sharks take to the ice this Sunday, April 16, at 7 p.m., at the SAP Center as playoff game competition gets underway against the Edmonton Oilers. 

Fans can ride Caltrain to the San Jose Diridon station, only a two-minute walk to the SAP Center as they gear up to cheer on the team. Sharks fans smelled blood in the water last year for the 2016 Stanley Cup and fans are determined to see victory.

Caltrain will run one extra post-game train departing San Jose Diridon station at 10:30 p.m. or 15 minutes after the game ends should the game go into overtime. The train makes all local stops. The train will make stops at the Broadway and Atherton stations on Sunday.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system: tickets are not sold onboard trains, but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Fans are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines after the game. The pass is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train. 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 Jose beginning at 9 pm on game nights.
