Back to School with Amtrak San Joaquins

As summer winds down, many students prepare for the new school year, whether heading to a new college or university campus or walking a few blocks from home. Amtrak San Joaquins is here to help you transition into a new chapter of life.

Outside Lands Music Festival

The chillest music and arts festival is back this weekend at San Francisco’s world renowned Golden Gate Park. From the Amtrak San Joaquins bus stop on Mission Street, the park is just a 20-minute Uber/Lyft ride, or you can hop on MUNI and it’ll take you directly to the festival! You can also take the train into Emeryville (EMY) or Richmond (RIC) and then hop on BART for a cost-effective and safe trip to OSL!

Battle of the Bay

Who will win this year’s Battle of the Bay, the San Francisco Giants or the Oakland Athletics? Attendees can travel to the event with a 50% reduced ticket price to cheer on their favorite Bay Area team and watch as the two regional talents battle it out on the baseball field.
