If you long for the days of big hair and loud music, AT&T Park is where heaven is. The Eagles, The Doobie Brothers and the Zac Brown Band come to town on Thursday, September 20, at 5 p.m., while Journey, Def Leppard and Foreigner will rock out on Friday, September 21, at 6 p.m., and Caltrain will keep its trains a-rollin’ with additional post-concert service.
Caltrain will be operating its standard weekday service for both concerts, and will have an additional two post-event southbound local trains each night departing after the end of the concert or when full. The last train of the evening will depart the San Francisco Caltrain Station at 12:05 a.m., which is remarkably close to being a midnight train going anywhere.
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. Tickets bought on the mobile app are valid as soon as they are purchased and cannot be stored for a future date.
Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and to remember that alcohol is not allowed on game-day trains beginning at 9 p.m.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased at Caltrain station ticket machines. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.

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 has enjoyed more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. 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.
