World Series Game 7 Highlights

BART has provided the following Giants parade day tips:

  • Load your Clipper card with extra value or, if buying a BART ticket, purchase a round trip ticket before parade day.
  • Avoid peak commute hours (6 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.).
  • Don¹t bring your bike on board trains or inside stations as they will be very crowded.
  • Allow extra time to get to San Francisco before the parade begins at 12 Noon.
  • Parking rules and restrictions will be enforced. Consider getting to the station by alternative means such as carpooling, walking, biking and parking your bike at the station) or taking a bus, as parking lots will fill up very early. Do not park in permit spaces if you don¹t have a permit. (Even if you have a reserved space, we cannot guarantee eager fans won¹t park there'we will be ticketing).
  • Plan your trip using the BART QuickPlanner.

BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said as of 8 a.m. officials expected 10,000 extra riders compared to a regular Friday in October.
