Take Caltrain to Giants Pre-Season Games at Oracle Park

Take Caltrain to Giants Pre-Season Games at Oracle Park

 

The San Francisco Giants are returning home for two final pre-season games in preparation for their 61st season in San Francisco, and Caltrain wants to help get you to Oracle Park.

The Giants will face off against their cross-Bay rival, the Oakland Athletics, on Monday, March 25, and Tuesday, March 26, with both games starting at 6:45 p.m.

In addition to Caltrain’s regular weekday schedule, two extra post-event trains will serve riders out of the San Francisco station. The first train will depart approximately 15 minutes after the last out, or when full. The second extra post-game train will depart approximately 25 minutes after the game, or when full.

This new weekday evening post-game service for the 2019 Giants season will provide express southbound service to the Millbrae station before making all local stops to San Jose Diridon. Regardless of when the game ends, the last train will depart San Francisco at 12:05 a.m.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines. 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 beginning at 9 p.m.
