Candlestick Park

Candlestick Park, a 69,000-seat stadium, built in 1960, will be demolished in 2014. We want you to have fun at any final events, so take Muni instead of driving! Event service will be announced when and if such events occur, and service notes below will be updated.

Last Chance Trips

Missed your bus? Not to worry!
  • If you miss the last 77X or 79X express bus to a 49ers game:
    • Take the 8X Bayshore Express from 4th and Market or the 9 San Bruno from Market Street, anywhere between Montgomery Station and 11th Street, to San Bruno and Bacon, where you can transfer to the 86 Candlestick Shuttle.
    • Take the T Third to Gilman and Third, where you can transfer to the 87 Candlestick Shuttle.
  • If you miss the last 78X to a 49ers game:
    • Take the 29 Sunset from 25th Avenue north of the park, or Sunset Blvd. south of the park, Stonestown (transfer from the 28 19th Avenue), Garfield/Grafton between Junipero Serra and Plymouth, or Geneva Avenue between Plymouth and Mission (including Balboa Park BART).
    • The 29 Sunset stops at Gilman Avenue and Bill Walsh Way (formerly Giants Drive), a short walk through the parking lot to the stadium.

Leaving the Stadium

  • If you leave before the 4th Quarter, the 86 and 87 shuttles run all through the game.
  • All four express routes (75X, 77X, 78X, 79X) and both shuttle routes (86, 87) run after the game. Buses normally begin return trips during the 4th Quarter or when a lot of customers want to go.
  • All express and shuttle services pick up on the loop on the west side of the stadium close to the drop-off point. Route numbers are posted.
