America’s Cup events will take place at the America’s Cup Park located at Pier 27 and America’s Cup Village located on Marina Green this weekend. Races are scheduled for approximately 12:15 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, each day.
Muni will provide supplemental transportation services to welcome the America’s Cup sailing fans and to keep the city moving:
MP-Market-Pier 39 bus shuttles from Embarcadero Station to Pier 39 will run between 10:45 am and 7:30 pm.
Event participants can also go by bike. There are green bike lanes along The Embarcadero from North Point to Howard streets in both directions. The southbound lane will not include the auto right-turn dash markings at this time, but the SFMTA crews will be back in August to apply special reflective treatments in merge areas for right turns.
Key transit enhancements and a detailed “People Plan” for transportation are in place to assure that visitors can easily visit the two main event venues, the America’s Cup Park at Piers 27/29 and the America’s Cup Village at Marina Green, and residents can go about their regular activities with a minimum of disruption. The centerpiece of the transportation plan, which includes transit, parking and bicycling, is a detailed map that helps visitors get to San Francisco’s busy waterfront.

Temporary Early Shutdown of Muni Subway Service
From Sunday through next Wednesday, beginning at 10 p.m. to approximately 4 a.m. each night, the SFMTA will perform construction of a fiber broadband network system to connect all underground information infrastructure in the subway and equipment rooms of the Muni Metro tunnels. This fiber network will be the internal communication backbone of the Metro system, linking all subway systems including public address, real-time platform displays and the power and facility remote monitoring systems.
During the construction, Muni Metro service will not operate between Church and Embarcadero stations in both directions from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Metro bus shuttles will be provided each evening and will use the F Market & Wharves historic streetcar stops for all boardings:
Eastbound (inbound) customers can get off at Church Station and board either a Metro shuttle bus or a F Market & Wharves streetcar at the F Line stop at Market and Church streets and continue to The Embarcadero.
Westbound (outbound) customers can board a Metro shuttle beginning at Market and Drumm streets and transfer to their intending line at either Church Station (K Ingleside, L Taraval or M Ocean View) or the nearby surface stops (N Judah, J Church).
Customers traveling to the Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets should use the T Third line for travel between Embarcadero Station and the Caltrain Station.
A map of the Metro bus shuttle service is attached.
