The Fourth of July fireworks are back this year, thanks to COVID-19 vaccines and the city’s ongoing reopening! The show will start at 9:30pm over San Francisco’s historic waterfront.

Muni wants to get you to the festivities and back, quickly and safely, on Independence Day. The State of California strongly recommends that anyone planning to attend the Fourth of July fireworks be fully vaccinated, obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending the event, or wear a face covering. Customers must wear face masks while riding transit or using transit facilities, per federal mandate.

Getting There

Before the show, from 3 to 9 p.m., Muni will provide extra service to connect people from the Muni Metro Subway, BART, Ferries and Caltrain to the fireworks viewing area. Along the Embarcadero, Muni will have two shuttle routes to Pier 39.

  • From the Ferry Building, board at Steuart & Mission and at historic streetcar stops along the Embarcadero.
  • From the Caltrain Depot, board at the 47 stop on Townsend Street west of 4th Street and from the Ferry Terminal onward, board at historic streetcar stops along the Embarcadero.

Getting Back

After the show, from 9 to 11:30 p.m., Muni will have two express shuttles providing express service from Pier 39 to the Ferry Building and Caltrain. These buses will use transit-only lanes to avoid traffic wherever possible.
