If the one thing you wanted for Christmas was football, Levi’s Stadium has you covered as they host the Foster Farms Bowl on Wednesday, December 27. And if you’re going to watch the Arizona Wildcats take on the Purdue Boilermakers, Caltrain will get you there for kickoff.
Fans can take VTA light rail from the Mountain View Caltrain Station to Levi’s Stadium, which will be operating its regular weekday service.
Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at vending machines at the stations. To save time on the return trip, passengers are encouraged to buy a Day Pass. Clipper card users are reminded to tag on and tag off.
Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and to remember that open containers of alcohol are not allowed on trains after 9 p.m. following special events.
Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.
For more information about Caltrain schedules and fares, call 1.800.660.4287 (TTY 650.508.6448) or visit www.caltrain.com.
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 65,000 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.
