Free bus ride to San Francisco for Giants’ victory parade

NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE — OCT 30, 2014 —

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since publishing this article earlier this afternoon, we contacted the River Cats and learned that this bus trip is filled up.  A team rep said that season ticket holders were contacted first with this limited offer. The few remaining bus seats, he said, were filled up quickly with other fans.  If you’re interested in going by train, read on.

The Sacramento River Cats will take up to 130 people on two buses from Raley Field to the San Francisco civic center on Friday, in order to celebrate the San Francisco Giants’ victory parade.

The Giants won the World Series this year with a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals in the decisive final game of the series. The River Cats, beginning this season, are the Giants’ “farm club” in minor league baseball.

The buses will depart Raley Field at 7 a.m. and will return in the afternoon.

If you’re interested in the free bus ride, RSVP to (916) 371-HITS (4487).

To travel separately, the River Cats suggests considering the Capitol Corridor train (http://capitolcorridor.org/tickets/). Look for #531, leaving Sacramento at 8:20 a.m., or #533, departing at 9:20 a.m. Take Amtrak to Richmond and transfer to BART and the Embarcadero Station (www.bart.gov).
