The SFMTA advises motorists of the increased congestion in downtown San Francisco related to these special events and advises commuters to use transit, taxis, bicycles or walk and to avoid using the Bay Bridge in the two hours before or after these games.

Additionally, the northbound portion of the 4th Street (Peter R. Maloney) Bridge will be closed to all traffic except streetcars, buses, taxis and bicycles during the post-game period. Giants fans parked south of Mission Creek Channel who are heading north of the channel are encouraged to exit to the south along 3rd or 4th streets in order to avoid congestion on King and 3rd streets after AT&T Park events.

Parking meters in the Special Event Zone near AT&T Park are enforced on Sundays when there are events at AT&T Park. This Sunday, parking meters in the Special Event Zone near AT&T Park will be enforced.

    Once more we are seeing how bad an idea it is to take down 280. We need to keep the freeways we have left. We need parking transit hub garages at the freeway exits, such as Silicon Valley is now considering. Neighborhoods want parking garages. All the BART stations in the East Bay have parking for riders. SF needs BART parking.
