Caltrain Restores San Francisco Weekend Train Service


Effective this Monday, April 1, Caltrain will update its timetable to restore regular weekend service to and from San Francisco with the exception of four additional weekends for San Francisco tunnel work needed for electrification. In addition, minor adjustments will be made to the weekday and weekend timetable.

The work has been scheduled around the 2019 Giants season and major events so as to minimize inconvenience to our riders.

Free bus service will replace weekend train service between the Bayshore and San Francisco Stations on the following dates:

  • Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 21
  • Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5
  • Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2
  • Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23

Please note these dates are subject to change.

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. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad has provided the community with more than 150 years of continuous passenger service. 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.
