Take Caltrain to the Circus in San Jose

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to the HP Pavilion Aug. 17 - 21 and Caltrain is the way to the “Big Top.”

With the San Jose Diridon station located across the street from the pavilion, Caltrain service makes getting there a hassle-free experience without the cost of driving and parking.

Bring your Caltrain ticket to the box office the day of the show to save $5 on tickets. Offer excludes front row and VIP seats and “double discounts.”

Ringling Bros. has been known as “The Greatest Show on Earth” for more than 135 years, and Caltrain has been moving customers along the Peninsula for more than 145 years. The San Jose show will feature performances by exotic animals, clowns, jugglers, acrobats and tumblers.

Caltrain is a Proof-of-Purchase system and requires passengers to purchase tickets before boarding. Tickets are not sold on-board trains but can be purchased at vending machines at the stations. Buy a Day Pass to save time after the event.
