The official provider of "hassle-free" game-day transportation for the San Francisco 49ers, 49ersExperience gives fans a safe and easy way to get to and from Candlestick Park. The ultra-deluxe motor coach hits the road from an array of locations in the Bay Area—including West Sacramento, Half Moon Bay, and Fisherman's Wharf—and outwits gridlock as you luxuriate in chauffeured comfort. Amplify your roadphoria by taking in the pregame show with your fellow passengers, and once at the stadium, try to stifle your laughter as pitiable car-shackled souls fork over fistfuls of cash for parking. Tailgate Express service gets fans to the park two hours before kickoff so that they can revel in the pregame asphalt gaiety, while Game Day Express service arrives at the game an hour before kickoff, giving passengers plenty of time to find their seats and compose a perfect taunting haiku for the competition.
In addition to getting you from your home's scrimmage line to the end zone with a minimum of pass interference, both 49ersExpress services hook fans up with the game-day magazine, coupons for a hot dog and soda, and bottled water and snacks for the ride. Passengers will also get a chance to win valuable 49ers memorabilia, including the grand prize: a giant glass jar containing Joe Montana. Consult the online FAQs for more info.
You must book your transportation at least 72 hours before your chosen game. Game Day Express service arrives at the game one hour before kickoff, and Tailgate Express service arrives two hours before kickoff.
