Bite Your Thumb at Traffic, Take Caltrain to Romeo and Juliet at Oracle Park


Romeo and Juliet take to the big screen at Oracle Park on Saturday, September 21, and Caltrain will provide special service to accommodate everyone who wishes to enjoy the works of the Bard while eating garlic fries.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the simulcast of the performance at the War Memorial Opera House begins at 7:30 p.m. Caltrain will run two extra pre-performance local trains that will depart San Jose Diridon Station at 3:15 p.m. and 5:08 p.m. The 613 will make all local weekend stops while the 619 will run express service to the San Francisco Station.

Caltrain will also run two post-performance trains that depart San Francisco approximately 15 and 25 minutes after the show, or when full. These trains will provide express southbound service to the Millbrae Station before making all weekend local stops to San Jose Diridon.

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 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.
