Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART)
BART is a proud sponsor of the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade. The Civic Center BART station is just on short block from the Celebration at Civic Center Plaza. Access the parade on Sunday from any of the downtown San Francisco stations when BART will provide longer trains to accommodate crowds. BART is a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way to get around, and is proud to serve the Bay Area.
Visit our new website, BART.GOV/BARTABLE for information on great BARTable events like SF Pride.
If you live or are staying in San Francisco we recommend using the San Francisco Muni Metro subway. Civic Center, Powell and Montgomery stations are the best stops for the Parade and Celebration. Extra buses will be operating from the Castro District as well as the Sunset and Richmond Districts. After the Parade, extra buses will be available at Market and 10th street for the return home.
Visit www.sfmta.com for special event service. You can also find out when the next Muni train will arrive at your stop by calling 511 and saying, “Muni”, then “Departure Times.”
Event participants using Bay Area public transportation systems are strongly encouraged to purchase their fares in advance or use Clipper® Card. Customers using Clipper Card also receive a $0.50 discount off an adult single ride when transferring to Muni from BART, Golden Gate Ferry and Transit, and San Francisco Bay Ferry routes (Oakland-Alameda, Harbor Bay and Vallejo). Golden Gate Ferry and Transit and San Francisco Bay Ferry also provide a reciprocal single-ride discount for Muni customers transferring to their service.
Call 511 or visit 511.org ahead of time to find out real-time driving times and traffic conditions such as road congestion, incidents and delays or construction.
Pedaling is one of the best ways to arrive at the Parade and Celebration. You can use the 511 BikeMappers to plan your bicycle trip. Bicycle parking is located at Hyde and McAllister Streets.
For information on Golden Gate Ferry service from North Bay, visit goldengateferry.org.
If you are coming from the Peninsula or Santa Clara County we recommend that you use Caltrain and take the train to the last stop on Fourth Street. Take a short walk to the Parade or a fast MUNI trip to the Celebration site from the Fourth Street stop. Contact Caltrain at 800-660-4287 for the latest information and schedules.
