The San Francisco 49ers will host the New Orleans Saints on Saturday afternoon at Candlestick Park in the second round of the 2012 NFL playoffs. This will be the first postseason game for the 49ers since 2002 and it is a safe bet that nearly everyone in the city will be paying rapt attention to the game.
It's also a safe bet that traffic on the way to Candlestick Point will be a veritable madhouse. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has been kind enough to update their website with some specific information on how to reach the park via public transportation.
There will be several express shuttles for you to take advantage of:
From the light rail: T Third to Gilman/Paul, then 87 Candlestick Shuttle
From BART: 75X express service from Balboa Park BART/Muni Station
Bus: 77X express service from the Van Ness corridor
Bus: 78X express service from the Park Presidio/19th Avenue corridor
Muni has also provided a map of these routes and the various express shuttles:
Hopefully everyone will find their way safely to the stadium or their chosen viewing location and will be able to cheer their Niners on to victory.
