Capitol Corridor: Special Late Night Train for U2 Concert May 17
Author: reindeerflame

U2 fans who have tickets to the band’s upcoming The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 stop on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, will now be able to travel to the show without the hassles of traffic and parking . . . and even enjoy a cocktail along the way.

The Capitol Corridor train, which directly serves Levi’s Stadium at the Santa Clara/Great America Station, will offer special late-night service after the concert so attendees can leave their cars at home and travel by train to and from the show. The concert is expected to be over by 11pm, and the special return train will depart promptly at 11:30pm from the Santa Clara/Great America Station, which is a five-minute walk from the stadium (though ticketed passengers should give themselves at least 20 minutes to get to the station given the large expected crowds.) The train will not wait for late passengers.

The Capitol Corridor coordinated the special late-night service with Amtrak and Union Pacific Railroad, and partnered with the tour’s promoter, Live Nation, to offer this convenient transportation solution to concert ticket-holders.

There is no special train for travel to the concert, as regular service will get attendees to the Santa Clara/Great America Station at 6:27pm. The concert start time, including opening guest performances, is scheduled for 6:30pm. There are earlier trains to Santa Clara as well – please check the Capitol Corridor schedule for more information.

This is how public transit is supposed to work. Good job CCJPA!

Nicely done...

We haven't figured out our travel plans to that show yet.

Are they selling special tickets for this train? If not, what happens after the concert if there are more people trying to get on the train then there is space on the train for?

There is essentially unlimited space for sale on the Capitol Corridor trains, as they are unreserved. Even on Thanksgiving Eve, arguably the busiest travel day of the year, there are no limits on ticket sales.

It's unlikely that the train will generate so much interest that it will be supercrowded.
