Take BART, VTA and Capitol Corridor to Levi's Stadium for 49ers vs. Packers game


Take BART, VTA and Capitol Corridor to Levi's Stadium for 49ers vs. Packers game

Football fans headed to Sunday's 5:20pm 49ers game against the Green Bay Packers can avoid traffic headaches by taking BART and VTA instead and get a steep discount on their fares. BART is offering 50% all Clipper fares this month while VTA is offering free fares on its light rail in September. 

More frequent VTA light rail service before the game

Fans attending Sunday evening’s game can take BART to the Milpitas Station and connect to VTA light rail at the Milpitas Transit Center. VTA will begin running trains every 15 minutes beginning at 3pm Sunday. Before 3pm, VTA light rail trains will run every 30 minutes. Full information about VTA service to Levi's Stadium can be found here

Fans must make the postgame VTA/BART connection no later than 8:30pm 

After the game, the final BART train will leave Milpitas Station at 9:15pm. Fans are urged to be in the queue line for VTA light rail at Levi’s Stadium no later than 8:30pm regardless of whether the game has ended or not to get to the BART station on time.

BART cannot run trains from Milpitas later than 9:15pm Sunday. BART is modifying its Sunday night service to accommodate fans in a way that doesn’t have major negative impacts to its maintenance obligations and to service on the remainder of the system. Running trains later than 9:15pm isn’t feasible at this time.

Capitol Corridor providing special service for the game

Capitol Corridor is providing special service for the game. To arrive at Levi's Stadium pre-game, fans can take either Capitol Corridor trains 741 or 743 at their regularly scheduled arrival times at Santa Clara-Great America station at 3:37pm or 5:38pm, respectively. For return in the Oakland/Sacramento direction, Capitol Corridor train 748 will hold at Santa Clara-Great America station until 9:00pm and finally arrive in Sacramento at 11:57pm. Full information about Capitol Corridor service to Levi's Stadium can be found here

What you need to know about parking

Parking at BART stations is free on Sundays except for parking at the Milpitas and Berryessa stations, which are managed by VTA. To avoid waiting for pay kiosks at these transit centers, VTA recommends paying in advance for parking permits. Full details about parking payment options at Milpitas and Berryessa can be found here.   

Looking ahead to 49ers vs Colts

BART, VTA and Caltrain are all working together to develop a similar service plan for the October 24th 49ers vs. Indianapolis Colts Sunday night game to ensure football fans can use public transportation for safe, cost effective, convenient trips to and from the stadium. This game is the only other Sunday night game this season. All other 49ers home games end during regular BART service hours.
