Bike parking volunteers needed for Grateful Dead concert

The Grateful Dead with Trey Anastasio, Jeff Chimenti, and Bruce Hornsby will perform this weekend at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA for their 50th anniversary “Fare The Well” concert to sellout crowds of 83,000 on each of Saturday and Sunday night.

You can pay $60 and up for parking, $4 round trip per person for light rail or the bus, $8 for the express bus, or pay nothing at all if you bike to the stadium. As usual for large events, the San Tomas Aquino Trail will be closed beginning at 2 PM except for those holding event tickets. Bring lights for your bike because this trail is extremely dark after sunset — I’ve heard people who can’t see where they’re going have steered themselves into the creek. City of Santa Clara reminds trail users to please pick up your trash — litter has become a real problem on the trail after stadium events.

Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition still needs volunteers to help with this valet bike parking on Saturday and Sunday night. You’ll be in the parking lot, but this doesn’t give you full stadium access (sorry). To volunteer for Saturday, click here. If Sunday works better, click here.

For those attending the Dead concert this weekend:

  • City of Santa Clara travel alert and guidance for the area around Levi’s Stadium. Pay attention to important notes about road closures, parking access, bike trail access, and parking restrictions.
  • Read VTA transit tips for Grateful Dead concert. This page contains service about VTA buses, light rail, and extra service, along with info about Caltrain and Amtrak.
  • Somebody asked about Bay Area Bike Share. There are no bike share kiosks in the vicinity of Levi’s Stadium. If you want to go for it anyway, you’ll spend in the neighborhood of $80 to $90 for a bike share membership and rental from 6 PM to midnight.
