Getting There

Fans are encouraged to take public transportation to Oracle Park.

Fans taking public transportation should be aware of modifications to Caltrain and Muni’s normal service. All other public transit services will operate on a regular Saturday schedule. Please use trip-planning apps or visit individual operators’ websites for up-to-the-minute information on arrivals.

Caltrain: Allow extra travel time due to the Caltrain Electrification Tunnel Work. Caltrain will have buses waiting at the Bayshore station for each train arrival. Most buses will provide direct service to 4th and King. Caltrain will have ambassadors on hand to help guide people to the correct bus.

Muni Metro: The T-Third will be replaced by buses from Embarcadero Station to Sunnydale. The N-Judah will provide normal service along the Embarcadero to Oracle Park. All rail lines will run as normal between Embarcadero Station and westward points, including the entirety of the Market Street and Twin Peaks tunnels.

Parking (Paid) – $10 for cars / $35 for oversized:

  • Due to construction activity around Oracle Park, fans are encouraged to park at Pier 30/32. Located on the Embarcadero at Bryant Street (entrance next to Red’s Java House), Pier 30/32 is a 10-minute walk along the waterfront to Oracle Park.
  • Lot A and Pier 48 will be open, but capacity will be limited. In addition, lane closures on 3rd Street could cause increased congestion. Fans coming from the south should exit I-280 North from Cesar Chavez or Mariposa and access Lot A or Pier 48 via Illinois and Terry A. Francois Boulevard.
