Score a goal by taking Caltrain to all Sharks home games at HP Pavilion, rather than driving or getting stuck in traffic. The Sharks’ preseason home opener is against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
With its San Jose terminal located across the street from the hockey arena, Caltrain service makes it easy to avoid the hassle and expense of driving and parking. A number of trains arrive from San Francisco and the Peninsula in time for the face-off. The last weekday and Saturday northbound train departs the San Jose station at 10:30 p.m. or 15 minutes after the game ends, whichever is later. The train makes all regular local stops. Trains stop at the Broadway and Atherton stations on weekends only.
Caltrain is a Proof of Purchase system and requires passengers to purchase tickets before boarding. Ticket options include: One-way, Day Pass, or 10-ride tickets. Passengers are required to validate all 10-ride tickets before boarding. Monthly Pass holders ride free through all zones on weekends.
Information about Caltrain hockey service is available in a new brochure, which will soon be onboard trains. Riders also can request a copy by calling Caltrain’s Customer Service Center at 1.800.660.4287.
