Weekend SF Caltrain Closure Oct. 6, 2018 – Late Spring 2019 (Impacts Fleet Week)

South San Francisco, CA  September 26, 2018 

Weekend SF Caltrain Closure Oct. 6, 2018 – Late Spring 2019

Trains will NOT serve the San Francisco or 22nd Street stations on weekends from October 6, 2018 to Late Spring 2019. Trains will terminate at Bayshore Station. Free bus service will be available for Caltrain riders from Bayshore Station to 22nd Street and San Francisco stations during regular weekend Caltrain service.

Bus schedules will be included in Caltrain’s weekend timetable. Buses will run on a schedule different from the standard Caltrain weekend schedule, so plan for additional travel time. Buses are ADA accessible and will have limited capacity for luggage and bikes onboard.

This closure is necessary to complete the San Francisco Tunnel Work, which will pave the way for Caltrain Electrification. Caltrain Electrification will make it possible to increase service while offering several advantages over the existing diesel fleet.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve Caltrain service.

Oct. 6 – 7: Fleet Week and 49ers at Levi’s Stadium, travel times for buses into/out of San Francisco may double due to number of people traveling to these events. Please allow extra time and plan accordingly or consider using one of the alternative transit options listed here.

Regular Weekend Service Restored – Jan. 5 and 6, 2019 due to NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship at Levi’s Stadium.
