World Series Games at AT&T Park

From Friday through Sunday: The San Francisco Giants will host Games 3, 4 and 5 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals at AT&T Park. These games will begin at 5:07 p.m., with pre-game activities beginning at 2:30 p.m., each day.

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 and after these games. Fans from the East Bay are encouraged to take public transit to San Francisco.

The following Muni service is available to and from all home games:

T Third
N Judah
Metro Baseball Shuttles
10 Townsend
30 Stockton
45 Union
47 Van Ness

The SFMTA will schedule additional Metro “baseball shuttles” to supplement the existing N Judah and T Third service to the ballpark.

The additional service will begin three hours prior to the game and continue until approximately 20 minutes after the start of the game.


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.

In order to reduce congestion on city streets after all events at AT&T Park, the SFMTA will close eastbound King Street between 3rd and 2nd streets from the seventh inning until after the post-game traffic has died down.

Muni service will not be impacted by any of the street closures.


During the World Series, three taxi stands will be available near AT&T Park for home games:

2nd Street (west side) between Townsend and King streets
2nd Street (west side) between Brannan and Townsend streets (post-game only)
3rd Street (west side) between King and Townsend streets


The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition operates a secure bike parking facility at AT&T Park. Bicycle parking is located on the south side of the ballpark, along the Port Walk, and opens two hours before every game and closes 30 minutes after each game.

SFMTA Parking Control Officers (PCOs) will contribute to the ease of getting to and from the game. Prior to each game, these PCOs will be deployed to key locations around the ballpark to facilitate pedestrians, transit vehicles and other traffic.

Inbound boarding of J Church is located at northeast of San Jose and Geneva avenues in front of Crazy Pepper Restaurant; accessible boarding will be available at the high-level platform located on San Jose Avenue at Seneca Avenue
The last stop of outbound J Church line is relocated to the M Ocean View island stop located at San Jose and Geneva Avenues
Inbound boarding of K Ingleside relocated to San Jose Avenue inside the Balboa Park Station Muni Yard.

The J-Church and K-Ingleside light rail service will continue service during all operation hours.
