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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here is a quick photographic tour of the Caltrain system and a day trip to San Francisco.
San José's Diridon Station is a splendid preserved mission style building.

Caltrain arrives at picturesque Menlo Park Station. Rather than waste time turning locomotives the service has these cab cars for the journey to San Francisco.
In San Francisco a light rail service connects the Caltrain station with the Embarcadero and the Market Street shopping and tourist area.
Beautiful Pacfiic Bell Park, home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team, is one stop on the light rail (or a very short walk) from Caltrain. Special Caltrain services are provided on game days.
At Embarcadero station you can transfer to the BART subway system for services to Oakland and Berkeley, or onto one of these historic streetcars for services along Market Street or to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39.
