Close to 9,500 Super Bowl 50 fans safely made their way to Levi's Stadium on Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) light rail trains and buses. Approximately 60% of the passengers on light rail transferred from Caltrain coming from San Francisco.

VTA's mobile ticketing app, EventTIK, enabled Super Bowl goers to purchase their fare in advance to make riding public transit easy and convenient.

Hundreds of public safety officers, coordinated by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Transit Patrol, secured the VTA system. Among the security detail were K-9 teams from across the country including Atlanta, Chicago, Seattle and Southern California to name a few.

VTA traditionally sees a small increase in the number of outbound passengers from Levi's Stadium. There will be another update at the end of service approximately two hours after the game ends.
