Motorists dealing with parking and traffic headaches will be green with envy at the passengers travelling hassle-free on Caltrain to this weekend’s San Francisco Green Festival.

The three-day event kicks off this Friday at Pier 35 in San Francisco. Attendees coming from the Peninsula can take Caltrain to the San Francisco station and transfer to Muni’s light-rail and bus lines for services to the festival. During the weekend, Muni’s E-Embarcadero historic streetcar line will provide direct service from the San Francisco Caltrain Station to Pier 35.

Event-goers who take Caltrain can receive $5 off admission price by showing their Clipper Card or printed ticket at the door. The event kicks off at noon on Friday, and 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Caltrain’s weekday and weekend schedules offer plenty of travel options for getting to the festival in time for the opening of doors.

The Green Festival is America’s largest and longest-running event devoted to sustainability and environmentally-friendly products. Companies and organizations will be on hand at the festival to showcase their green products and services.

For fare and schedule information, visit or call 1.800.660.4287 (TTY 650.508.6448.) Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased at station ticket machines.


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 enjoyed more than 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 system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
