Maker Faire @ San Mateo County Event Center

There are two types of people in this world: those who have been to Maker Faire, and everyone else who keeps saying they’ll go one of these days. You can plan to be among the former by taking Caltrain to this year’s celebration of invention, steam punk fashion and art for its own sake.

Maker Faire takes place May 17-19 at the San Mateo County Event Center, which is easily accessible by Caltrain via the Hillsdale Station or the SamTrans 292.

While you’re there, keep an eye out for our SamTrans booth with fun trivia and giveaways.

Bay to Breakers @ Downtown San Francisco              

San Francisco may be changing, but Bay to Breakers on Sunday, May 19, is a reminder to everyone that this city still knows how to party.

Caltrain special event service starts bright and early out of San Jose Diridon Station to transport the runners, drinkers, folks in salmon costumes and old people who just wanted to get to the farmer’s market early.

Advance train ticket purchases are available in the Caltrain Mobile Ticketing App. Have fun, and be safe!

Earthquakes vs. Chicago Fire @ Avaya Stadium

There’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on as the San Jose Earthquakes take on Chicago Fire on Saturday, May 18. We encourage all soccer fans to take advantage of Caltrain’s conveniently located Santa Clara Station right near at Avaya Stadium so that you too can find out if Coach Almeyda’s system is taking root… ‘cus soccer, am I right?
