Transportation - Caltrain

The Caltrain commuter rail service connects San José with San Francisco. The journey takes about 1.5 hours and is the most convenient way to make a day trip to San Francisco (yes, you can drive, but you can't park).

IMPORTANT: Due to a major engineering project, CalTrain will not be operating a weekend service throughout much of 2002, including the period of ConJosé. There should be service available on Monday; see the RRX schedule for more info. If you need help about alternative public transit routes to San Francisco please contact us at

Here is a quick photographic tour of the Caltrain system and a day trip to San Francisco.
