Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference opened today at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, and as always, Caltrain is on hand to deliver you to the future of social media.
This Tuesday and Wednesday, May 1 and 2, Facebook will lay out its upcoming plans for all the new things we’ll be obsessively doing on our phones. With discussions of security, AI, augmented reality and maybe even another Candy Crush, the conference is the place to be for programmers, venture capitalists and tech bros of all stripes.
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 or utilize the new Caltrain Mobile ticketing app. Clipper card users are reminded to tag on and tag off.
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. Parking permits cannot be purchased on the Caltrain Mobile app.
For schedule and fare information for Caltrain, or for help planning your trip, 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 enjoyed more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders. 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.
