BottleRock 2024

Napa Valley's Vine Transit bus system offers free rides and extended, late-night service all weekend- including regional express service to BART.

All rides on the Vine bus during BottleRock Napa Valley (May 24-26) will be free if you’re going to the concert or just getting around town.

To make it easier and quicker to get around during the three-day concert, Vine buses will be staying up late with extended (free) services across the Valley. That includes late-night routes that connect with BART, making it easy to get to and from the Bay Area. Routes also connect to the Vallejo Ferry.

Buses will carry concert-goers to and from the Soscol Gateway Transit Center at 625 Burnell St., Napa, just a 4-minute walk from the Napa Valley Expo where BottleRock takes place. It’s easier than ever to avoid the headache of driving, parking and traffic.

Look for a full BottleRock bus schedule coming soon, but highlights include:
