New Transit Service to and from Chase Center

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Chase Center platform and arena

Wherever you live in the Bay Area, public transit will be the fastest, most reliable and least expensive way to get to Chase Center. Located at the corner of Third and 16th streets in Mission Bay, the 18,064-seat Chase Center will be home to the Golden State Warriors and host to more than 200 concert events and conferences annually beginning Sept. 6.

To help ensure that Chase Center patrons can get to and from events with minimal impact on residents and businesses in the neighborhood, the SFMTA and Chase Center have been working in partnership, planning transit options. Up to 26 Parking Control Officers will be supporting transit in the area, focused on transit priority, traffic control, parking and curb enforcement and safety.

New Muni Service

We are very excited to announce two new express routes that will help get people to and from Chase Center. The new Route 78X 16th Street Arena Express bus service will run from 16th and Mission Streets and the new Route 79X Van Ness Arena Express will run from existing route 47/49 bus stops along the Van Ness Corridor. Route 78X and 79X buses will begin running approximately 2.5 hours before the start of any Chase Center event and for 30 minutes after events. After events, both routes will drop off at 16th and Mission BART station. Route 78X will return to Chase Center for additional trips. Route 79X will continue, making local stops on Van Ness, beginning at Market Street and continuing to North Point. These new routes will improve arrivals and departures from each Chase Center event.

Additional Muni Service

Muni Metro Increased rail service along Third Street and the Embarcadero. UCSF/Chase Center (16th Street) T Third and S Shuttle lines stop is located on Third Street, directly west of Chase Center, and allows for four 2-car trains to load simultaneously and run inbound from both sides of the platform
Muni Buses Regular Bus Service: Routes 55, 48, 22 will run according to their regular schedules.
Muni Owl Service Muni’s Owl service is the late-night and early-morning bus network that serves San Francisco. It is part of regional All-nighter service with additional coverage of the East Bay and Peninsula from approximately midnight to 5 a.m. Route 91 3rd Street/19th Avenue Owl stops at Third Street and Gene Friend Way approximately every 30 minutes.

There are no stopping zones throughout the area to ensure that traffic can move smoothly. Please be aware of appropriate locations to pick up and drop off. Third Street northbound will be also closed after events for the block adjacent to Chase Center. Remember, your event ticket is your Muni fare, so you'll be able to ride Muni all day (excludes cable car). Please sign up for our Chase Center GovDelivery alerts to stay informed.
