Caltrain Runs Special Service to Sharks Season Opener


Wednesday, October 3, the San Jose Sharks are back on the ice at the SAP Center for their Season Home Opener against the Anaheim Ducks. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m., and its Caltrain’s goal to get you there to see it live.

Caltrain’s weekday schedule includes plenty of trains that will arrive in San Jose for the game. The last train departs the San Jose Diridon Station at 10:30 p.m. Should the game run long or go into overtime, the train will wait 15 minutes after the game ends, but will depart no later than 10:45 p.m. The train makes all regular local stops. Trains will stop at the Broadway and Atherton stations on weekends only.

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. Caltrain enjoyed more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
