A Capitol Corridor Riders Guide to Getting to the Chase Center

October 22, 2019

 

The Chase Center opened its doors in early September and is already being called an astonishing and extraordinary sports and entertainment venue. The new home of the Golden State Warriors is also drawing big-name musical acts and stars like Oprah. For our loyal riders who are wondering how they can ride the Capitol Corridor to get to the Chase Center, don’t worry, we’ve put our travel planner hats on and routed the best ways for you to get from the Capitol Corridor to the Chase Center in San Francisco. All of our recommended transfer options accept the Clipper Card for fare payment, so be sure to bring your own or purchase one on board the train in the Café Car.

Option 1: Capitol Corridor Train + BART + Muni

Take the Capitol Corridor and transfer to BART at our shared  Richmond or  Oakland Coliseum station and board any San Francisco bound train. Depart at Embarcadero and transfer to SF Muni. We recommend taking the Muni KT Line, which stops at the Embarcadero Station every 10 minutes and drops you off just three minutes from the Chase Center. The S Shuttle also runs above and below ground along a similar route to help with the increased demand.

Travel time: Approximately one hour from the Richmond and Oakland Coliseum stations.

Option 2: Capitol Corridor + Capitol Corridor Emeryville Connecting Bus + Muni

The Capitol Corridor’s dedicated connecting bus service picks passengers up from the Emeryville Station and takes them to San Francisco. After getting off the train, walk to the other side of the station to board a bus that is heading to the Salesforce Plaza stop (Service Begins 10/28). From Salesforce Plaza, you can walk eight minutes to the Embarcadero Muni Station. From Embarcadero, board the KT line to get dropped off just three minutes away from the Chase Center.

For more information on the Emeryville bus connection, check our San Francisco Connecting Bus schedules here.

Travel Time: Approximately 35 minutes from the Emeryville Station to the entrance of the Chase Center.

Option 3: Capitol Corridor Train + Ferry

The SF Bay Ferry in Jack London Square is about a 10-minute walk from the Capitol Corridor’s Oakland Jack London Square Station and makes for a relaxing and scenic ride into San Francisco. Once in San Francisco, it is about a 15-minute walk to the Chase Center.

The ferry does offer adjusted schedules for special events at the Chase Center, so check their site for the current schedule. Note: The ferry schedule may not work for return trips as the final Capitol Corridor train may have already departed by the time the ferry arrives in Oakland. In these instances, passengers can purchase a multi-city train ticket and use another Capitol Corridor station for the return portion of the trip.

Travel Time: Approximately 45 minutes from the Oakland Jack London Square Ferry Terminal.

Option 4: Last-Mile Solutions

Sometimes, a last-mile solution can be faster and cheaper. If you feel comfortable ridesharing, we recommend using Lyft to carpool from either one of the Capitol Corridor’s East Bay train stations or the Embarcadero BART Station to get to the Chase Center. San Francisco BART stations have a number of scooter and bike-sharing options such as, but not limited to, Bird, Jump, and Lime.

Option 5: Your Own Two Feet and Wheels

Finally, if you’re in need of some exercise and really want to save money, there’s nothing better than your own two feet or wheels! The Chase center is just a 36-minute walk from the Montgomery BART Station. You’ll enjoy the event knowing you got your step count in for the day! Biking to the Chase Center is also a great option, as the Chase Center has Valet Biking for up to 300 bikes.

 

So, as you can see, there are plenty of ways to ditch your car, avoid traffic, and support public transportation!
