Transit To the Tunes This Weekend

The biggest concert weekend of the year takes place this weekend in the Bay Area.  Several huge concerts and music festivals will take place in San Francisco, Mountain View, and San Jose.

Expect standing room only (SRO) conditions on Caltrain from Friday thru Sunday.  This is because fans traveling to and from these concerts will be riding with normal commuters.

This guide will show you bus and rail options to help you beat traffic gridlock and parking hassles at these events.  Options even detail some private shuttle bus options to and from these events.
