We encourage everyone to take public transportation to the event as we expect big crowds. AT&T Park is accessible by MUNI, Caltrain, and BART. For more information on public transportation options to the ballpark, check out AT&T Park’s transit page.


Bike Parking will be provided by the SF Bike Coalition.


Limited parking will be available in Lot A for $10/vehicle.




New for 2013
