Take Transit to the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show

Spring is back, and there is no better way to celebrate than by going green and taking public transportation to the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show in San Mateo this week.

The event, which showcases world-class flower and garden displays, will take place at the San Mateo County Event Center from March 16 to March 20. The county event center is just a short walk from the Hillsdale Caltrain Station, at the corner of El Camino Real and Hillsdale Boulevard. The event will also provide shuttle service between the Hillsdale Caltrain Station and the convention center during the days of the festival.

SamTrans’ Route ECR travels on El Camino Real and stops a few blocks away from the event center, as do several other SamTrans bus lines.

Founded in 1986, the show gathers people from around the world to educate, encourage and inspire garden lovers of all ages and all levels of knowledge and experience.

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines located on station platforms. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.

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 has enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. 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 corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
