The “transit first” philosophy, shared by UCSF, Chase Center, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), encourages the use of public transportation. However, on the busiest days, we still expect traffic congestion and provide a calendar to help UCSF commuters plan.

To see what’s happening at a glance, the calendar displays red or yellow to show expected traffic impact, most of which will occur on weekday evenings.

Red Days
On red days, please expect increased traffic and delays near the start and end time of events. Red indicates a weekday Chase Center concert or event that is expected to draw a capacity crowd of around 18,000 attendees. Red also indicates two weekday events with similar start times, one at Chase Center and one at Oracle Park, for example.

Yellow Days
On yellow days, expect possible traffic delays in Mission Bay due to Chase Center events with fewer than 18,000 attendees on a weekday, or any weekend event.
