Caltrain to Deliver Extra Service During Lady Gaga Concert
Media Contact: Mahmoud Abunie, 650.730.6201
There are a “Million Reasons” why fans of Lady Gaga should consider taking Caltrain to her concert tomorrow night at Oracle Park.
Caltrain will be running an additional train on Thursday, September 8, for the Lady Gaga concert. The extra train will depart San Francisco Station after the end of the concert or when full and no later than 11:30 p.m. making all stops until San Jose Diridon Station. The last train will depart at 12:05 a.m.
Riders are encouraged to check the schedule for service to and from Oracle Park to ensure they are at the platform with a paid ticket before trains arrive and depart.
Given the large crowds expected, riders are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass through the Caltrain mobile app or use Clipper to avoid lines at ticket vending machines. Riders using the mobile app must purchase their ticket on the day of the game for it to be valid. Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased using the Caltrain mobile app or through ticket machines onsite. The mobile app can be used immediately after parking, as it requires a space number. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.
Caltrain reminds customers that open alcoholic beverages are prohibited on the trains beginning at 9 p.m. on special event days and nights. Caltrain encourages riders to wear a face covering while on board.
