Mission Bay Updates
BASEBALL SEASON IS HERE!
The 2014 season is here; below are some tips to avoid post-game delays.
- Day games generally end between 4 and 4:30.
- Traffic for night games begins between 5 and 5:30pm.
- Several street are closed altogether or in one direction, starting in the 7th inning and continuing for about an hour post-game. Click here for the Game Day map.
- Allow for extra travel time and be cautious of heavy pedestrian traffic.
- Remember meter pricing is at a premium during games and there are time limits.
- Use our Nextbus system to see when buses will arrive and follow us on Twitter for real time updates.
- Muni runs extra light rail service pre and post games
EARLY AM SERVICE
We have added two early morning runs from BART and Caltrain, to accommodate customers who start work between 6am and 7am. Shuttles will leave BART at 6:15am and 6:45am.
The bus runs the "Mission Bay Loop" route -- combining East and West destinations. It follows the East route from BART to Nektar; then travels to Owens Street. It runs the West route from Owens Street back to BART (via Berry St).
Residents living along the East route wanting to take the early bus to BART should board either at the Mission Rock or Nektar stop.

WEST BUSES TO DETOUR ON EAST ROUTE FROM 8-9AM
WEST route buses may'detour' to the Nektar stop on runs between 8am and 9am to alleviate overcrowding during the peak morning commute.
This will result in a slight delay (3-4 min.) for our Owens St. customers, and the bus will not serve Berry Street in the Mission Bay-bound direction between 8 and 9am. After leaving the Caltrain Station, the West bus will follow the East route (down 4th Street to MBBS) to Nektar; then head to Owens Street and get back on its normal route.
We apologize for any inconvenience and are planning to expand service soon.
FOURTH STREET DELAYS
Central Subway construction is once again closing lanes on Fourth Street. Work in three places along Fourth Street -- at Market Street, between Bryant and Folsom, and between Townsend and Bryant -- will cause intermittent lane closures on both the east and west sides of the street for the next few weeks.
It's easier than ever to bike to work using bart or caltrain!
Bikes are now allowed on all BART trains at any time. The only caveat is during peak commute hours (7am-9am; 4:30pm-6:30pm), when bikes are not allowed in the first 3 cars of any train, on already crowded cars, or to block doorways and aisles. Bikes are not allowed in the first train car at any time. Cyclists must also continue to yield priority seating to seniors and those with disabilities on trains at all times.
The Bike Parking Station at the Caltrain station has a new operator who plans new services and expanded access.
The station offers FREE, valet parking from 6:30am to 8:30pm Mon-Fri, and is expanding capacity from 120 to 180 spaces. Same-day repairs and accessory sales are now available, as well, at this station.
Coming in 2014: digital check-in for faster check-in, retrieval, and ordering bike repairs; 24/7 controlled access for 80 bikes; and a regular schedule of free classes and workshops covering safety, route planning, and bike repair.
