Caltrain schedules big train for Big Game

Caltrain has announced special service trains to help get fans to the 110th Big Game at Stanford University on Saturday.

A special limited-stop train will depart from the San Francisco Caltrain station at 1:50 p.m. and will arrive at the Stanford Stadium station at 2:30 p.m., giving fansof both the University of California Golden Bears and the Stanford Cardinal plenty of time to tailgate before the football game.

Regular service trains will also begin stopping at the Stanford Stadium station at about 2 p.m. All regular northbound and southbound trains also stop at the Palo Alto station, about a half-mile from Stanford Stadium, according to Caltrain.

A special limited-stop train back to San Francisco will leave from Stanford Stadium station 20 minutes after the game ends or when it is full. The limited-stop trains stop only at the Millbrae and Hillsdale stations between Stanford and San Francisco.

Regular service trains will stop at the Stanford Stadium station between 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.

East Bay football fans can change from BART to Caltrain at the Millbrae Intermodal Station. Caltrain recommends people buy day passes at their departure station as the Stanford Stadium station does not have ticket vending machines.

Cal has won the past five games between the two rival universities.
