Fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers heading to their concert at Levi’s Stadium Friday, July 29, at 6:30 p.m., can rely on Caltrain and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) to get them to and from the show. Stress about traffic and parking? Give it away, now.
Caltrain will be operating its regular weekday service along the Peninsula. Fans can transfer to VTA light rail at the Mountain View Caltrain Station for continuing service to the stadium. Following the concert, Caltrain’s last northbound train will depart Mountain View at 11:33 p.m., while the last southbound train departs at 1:18 a.m. Riders traveling northbound would need to catch VTA light rail by 11:00 p.m. to make the connection with Caltrain.
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. Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at station ticket machines or via mobile ticketing before boarding. Day Passes purchased through the mobile app are valid on the day of purchase through the end of the service day.
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 recommends riders wear masks while on board.
