If you read our page on parking at AT&T Park you’ll see that it’s expensive. Using mass transit is easy, especially if you’re not in a hurry to rush off after the game. Scroll to the bottom of this page for the all-in-one area transportation map, and we have lots of info below so your area should be covered.
Public Transit Inside San Francisco & Bike Parking
Getting to San Francisco on BART — If you’re coming into San Francisco via BART, get off at the Embarcadero Station, which is across the street from the Ferry Building. Inside the Embarcadero Station you can connect to the Muni route that serves AT&T Park (see below), or…
From the Ferry Building it’s a nice walk along the Embarcadero to the ballpark, which takes under 30 minutes at a brisk pace or longer if you stop to enjoy the views.
Muni in San Francisco — From the Embarcadero Station or anywhere else in the Muni system take any train going to Mission Bay, Sunnydale or Caltrain and get off at King and 2nd. You can take the T Third Line north to King and 2nd as well — this is the line that becomes the ballpark shuttle on game days, with super-frequent trains.
Muni buses 10, 30, 45 and 47 also stop close to the ballpark. Here’s the Muni AT&T Park map (click to enlarge):
SF Bike Coalition has a secure bike parking area in the right field wall along the water. It’s open from 2 hours before the game until a half hour after the game, so just make sure to get there reasonably soon after the final pitch.
From the Peninsula
CalTrain drops passengers 1 block from the stadium. It’s so efficient you’d think you were in Europe. (OK, that one long block feels like 2 blocks, but it’s still darn close!) See also the BART tips above.
From Marin (Ferry) and the East Bay
Note: For post-season games extra ferries may be added to more destinations than those listed below.
Special ferries run from Larkspur run directly to the ballpark, or you can take the regular ferries from Larkspur or Sausalito — see below for connecting bus routes from Marin and for overflow parking vouchers. From there you can take Muni (see below) or it’s a really nice walk down to the ballpark.
The Golden Gate Ferry is developing a new ballpark ferry ticketing system with Tickets.com this year but it won’t be ready for the start of the season. For now you can use your Clipper Card on the special ballpark runs but there are no discounts from the $9 rate, so for a day game it’s cheaper to take the regular ferry and get the health benefits of walking down from the Ferry Building. Kids under 5 ride for free, up to two kids per adult.
For big games the ferries get mobbed so you want to arrive at least an hour early to make sure you get on board. Trust us, we’re not exaggerating!
From the East Bay: BART brings fans to the Embarcadero and Powell St. Stations — see details under the San Francisco section above.
From the Wine Country: You can take a dedicated ballpark ferry from Vallejo directly to AT&T Park.
After the Game: San Francisco’s Muni system
Police and Muni do check tickets for people going to the Muni train after the game, and if you don’t have a ticket or transfer they’ll turn you away. A Clipper card will also work.
Giants Muni sales windows are located near the Will Call windows at AT&T Park, across the street from the Muni station. They only accept cash and BART discount coupons.
The Muni trains immediately after the game are packed and it can be uncomfortable on the platform. If you take your time and walk around the stadium after the game (at least till the ushers start herding people out) the worst of the crowding will have passed. You can also visit the Giants Dugout Store (on the 3rd St. side of the stadium) or get an after-game beer or snack at a nearby restaurant and then catch a train. Trains become much less frequent one hour after the game ends, so keep this in mind.
