Plan Ahead For Getting Around January 30 – February 7

If you’ve never used County Connection buses to get to a BART station, now might be a good time to try. Superbowl is coming to town, and with it, tens of thousands of people coming into and moving around our communities. Parking at BART stations will become a bigger challenge than it is now.

Whether or not you’re a football fan, we’ll all feel the impact.  Hotels are completely booked and retailers and restaurants are staffing up.

Two big events in San Francisco start January 30 and run through February 7 that will impact traffic in the Bay Area. Superbowl City is a free public event near the Embarcadero BART station, and the NFL Experience is a ticketed event taking place at Moscone Center. Transportation around these events will be impacted.
