Caltrain to Run Chartered ‘Quakes Train’ in Addition to Regular Service for the California Clasico

The Quakes Train will be running service to and from Stanford Stadium Station so soccer fans can catch the California Clasico on Saturday, July 1. All riders with a valid ticket to the game will ride free.  

The game will also be served by two regular weekend service trains from both directions before and after the game. These trains serving the Stanford Stadium Station will be locals, making all stops. For ADA accessibility, riders are recommended to use Palo Alto Station.  

Given the large crowds expected, riders are encouraged to use Clipper or purchase a Day Pass through the Caltrain mobile app to avoid lines at ticket vending machines. Riders using the mobile app must purchase their ticket on July 1 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.
