Now that you’re thoroughly groaning, let us remind you that the best way to get to Taylor Swift’s concerts, on time and without worrying about groan-inducing Highway 101 traffic, is to take Caltrain. After all, we want your endgame to be a good time, and not have you to get there late and have your evening be a nightmare dressed like a daydream. We also wouldn’t want you getting bad blood with someone in the parking lot after fighting over that last blank space.
Alright, enough of that.
Fans of the pop goddess can catch a train and ride to the Mountain View Transit Center. From there, connect with VTA light rail trains or buses, located at Evelyn Avenue and Castro Street. Light rail trains will drop you off at the Great America Station right by the stadium.
Thousands and thousands of fans are expected to pack the home of the San Francisco 49ers both nights to hear the 10-time Grammy winner belt out singles from her Reputation album and likely some of her prior megahits. The Santa Clara shows will be the second stop on Swift’s massive 51-concert, international tour. Openers are Camila Cabello and Charli XCX.
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 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.
