49ers Monday Night Football Game
On Monday the San Francisco 49ers will host their last home game of the regular season against the Pittsburgh Steelers starting at 5:30 p.m. at Candlestick Park.

Traffic heading to this event will coincide with peak period commute traffic and fans are encouraged to arrive at the stadium early.

Motorists should expect very heavy traffic on the westbound Bay Bridge and in both directions of U.S. 101 leading to Candlestick Park before the game. I-280 through Daly City is a good alternate route for Peninsula drivers not attending the game. BART is the best alternative to Bay Bridge congestion. Fans attending the games are also encouraged to take public transportation.

Muni offers several ways to get to Candlestick Park from locations throughout San Francisco. There are four Muni Express routes and two Shuttles.

The Muni Express route is Special Event Fare Service
Adult fare: $12 roundtrip
Youth/Senior/Disabled fare: $10 roundtrip
Muni monthly pass, Passport or CityPass Special Event Add-on fare: $8 roundtrip (adult and discount pass holders)

The Candlestick Shuttles are regular fare service, $2 adult per trip and $.75 for youth/senior/disabled per trip.

In order for Clipper customers with a monthly pass to obtain the add-on fare discount, at least $8 in cash value must be loaded to their Clipper cards prior to boarding the special event Muni service.

Customers can load their cards online at (please allow at least five days for processing), or at one of the participating Clipper vendors or ticket vending machines in a Muni Metro station. Please go to for fare details.

For service to and from the game, T Third customers should transfer at the Gilman/Paul station to the 87 Candlestick Shuttle, which operates directly between the station and Candlestick Park.
