Holiday parking and transit tips for the Fourth of July 

If you're coming into The City for Fourth of July festivities, here's some information to help you deal with the transit and parking crunch.

Parking: Parking meters will be enforced on Monday so beware. Residential parking permit areas, however, will not be enforced.

Muni: Sunday service will be in affect for the morning of the Fourth of July, meaning later start times and less-frequent service. Starting at 2 p.m., the agency will begin providing bus shuttles to passengers trying to watch the fireworks at Pier 39, Aquatic Park and Ghirardelli Square. The shuttle will travel up and down Van Ness Avenue. It will begin taking passengers from those points at 10 p.m., and stop when crowds begin to disperse. Muni will also add extra train service starting at 2 p.m.

BART: Will operate on Sunday service until evening, meaning later start times and less-frequent trains. For the Fourth of July fireworks in San Francisco, BART will begin running longer trains in the evening to accommodate crowds, while also increasing service.

Golden Gate Transit: Bus and ferry service will operate on Sunday schedule. There will be no morning commute service on the bus lines.

Caltrain: Will operate on Sunday schedule for most of the day. Due to the fireworks, a special train will depart from San Francisco Station at 11:15 p.m., or whenever full. It will run express to San Carlos and then make all local stops until San Jose Diridon station. Two more special trains will depart, at 11:30 p.m. and 12:01 a.m., making all local stops to San Jose Diridon station.

SamTrans: Will operate on Sunday schedule.
