SF Weekend Caltrain Service Closure

Weekend SF Caltrain Closure

Caltrain’s San Francisco tunnel construction, which is needed for the electrification of Caltrain, will require six weekend service closures. Crews will be installing an overhead contact system as part of the electrification project.

Trains will terminate at Bayshore station. Caltrain will NOT operate service to 22nd Street or San Francisco stations on the following weekends*:

  • Saturday, Feb 22 and Sunday, Feb 23
  • Saturday, Feb 29 and Sunday, March 1
  • Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8
  • Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15
  • Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22
  • Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29

On these weekends, free SamTrans bus service will replace train service between Bayshore and San Francisco stations. Buses are ADA accessible and will have limited capacity for luggage and bikes onboard.

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

We thank you for your continued patience.

*Subject to change according to construction work.
