Major Traffic Expected During Giants' Ticker Tape Parade

The roads are likely to be clogged Wednesday as Giants fans head into San Francisco for the parade. BART will be running a rush hour service all day to accommodate Giants fans, Halloween revelers and daily commuters.

San Francisco will hold a ticker tape parade and civic celebration in honor of the Giants on Wednesday, and if the occasion is anything like 2010 — you're going to want to get there in ways other than your car.

The parade in honor of the Giants' World Series victory against the Detroit Tigers will start at 11 a.m. at the foot of Market Street and continue to Civic Center Plaza.

Bart officials announced Monday that the system will run on a rush hour schedule all day Wednesday, employing every available car to shuttle as many people as possible into San Francisco for the parade and various Halloween-related events. Still, the transit agency advised passengers to expect long lines and crowded cars, and suggested buying tickets in advance or loading up your Clipper card.

Apart from an extra boat from Oakland at 9:30 a.m. and an extra boat leaving Alameda at 9:40 a.m., ferry service from the East Bay will be on a regular weekend schedule. There will be eight extra ferries departing from Vallejo Wednesday.
