Independence Day revelers can connect to MUNI lines from BART’s downtown San Francisco stations to get to the free pre-fireworks concert at San Francisco’s Pier 39, which begins at 1 p.m. on July 4. The City of San Francisco will begin its spectacular fireworks display over the Bay at approximately 9:30 p.m. on July 4.

For all events, BART officials suggest riders buy round-trip tickets to avoid lines before the ride home.
