Racing enthusiasts can zip around traffic and parking headaches by making Caltrain part of their trip to Levi’s Stadium for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross spectacle on Saturday night.
The technically precise sport features off-road motorcyclists racing against each other on a dirt track comprised of various obstacles, launching ramps and difficult-to-navigate turns. The main event begins at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, but doors open to the public at noon.
Caltrain’s weekend schedule offers hourly service in both directions to the Mountain View Caltrain Station. From there, fans will be able to board Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s light-rail vehicles to the stadium in Santa Clara. Those trips will take about a half-hour.
Following the event, Caltrain will offer an extra northbound train, which will depart the Mountain View station about 75 minutes after the conclusion of the contest, or when full. The last regularly scheduled northbound train departs the Mountain View station at 10:49 p.m.
Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Fans are encouraged to purchase an adult joint Caltrain/VTA Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines after the game. The pass costs $6 more than the regular adult Caltrain Day Pass, but it is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train of the day and until 3 a.m. on VTA.
Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and remember that open containers of alcohol are not allowed on trains after 9 p.m. following special events. Food and beverage consumption aren’t allowed on VTA.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. 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.
