South San Francisco, CA June 5, 2019 Submitted by SamTrans
SamTrans is a sponsor of the fair, which runs from June 8 through 16. Peninsula residents can get to the fair without the stress and worries of traffic by taking public transportation. The fairgrounds are served by SamTrans Routes ECR, ECR Rapid and 292, with stops located nearby.
Caltrain also provides service to the fair from both the Hillsdale and Hayward Park Stations. Customers arriving at the Hillsdale Station can walk a short distance along Delaware Street to the fairgrounds main entrance. Riders using the Hayward Park Station can take Concar Drive to Delaware Street.
SamTrans will host a fair booth on Monday, June 10 (Family PRIDE Day) and Tuesday, June 11 (Senior Day), from noon to 4:00 p.m. both days. While supplies last, electric SamTrans bus and Caltrain squishes will be given out. Kids can also play Plinko for a chance to win a color pencil set.
SamTrans’ staff will be on site to assist with trip planning to all the destinations accessible via bus and train. The fair opens at noon on both days.
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.
About SamTrans: SamTrans operates 70 routes throughout San Mateo County. Funded in part by a half-cent sales tax, the San Mateo County Transit District also provides administrative support for Caltrain and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority. SamTrans has provided bus service to San Mateo County customers since 1976.
