Outside Lands: August 11-13, Road Closures and Added Service

August 9, 2023

    Hi Mooviters,

    The annual Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is this weekend, at Golden Gate Park. The festival draws a large crowd, and some streets will be closed (details below). SFMTA is adding extra service for festival attendees. 

    For those heading to the festival, plan ahead with Moovit’s trip planner, just search ” Golden Gate Park” and set your desired arrival or departure time.

    Muni Service for Outside Land Music and Arts Festival

    Muni will provide extra service on the N Judah and 5R Fulton Rapid. Each night of the festival, Muni will provide 5X Fulton Express service from Golden Gate Park to Civic Center BART Station. Due to increased ridership for this event as well as others around the city, concertgoers should allow extra travel time on the N Judah and all bus lines serving Golden Gate Park. Traffic in the area will also be heavy.

    Extra Service

    Muni will provide extra service to Golden Gate Park in addition to the regular scheduled service. Extra service on 5R will not serve the entire route. The N Judah will have extra trains along the full route; extra buses on Fulton will have different destination signs so you can tell them apart from buses operating on regular schedules.
