Napa Valley Wine Train, which offers tours through wine country, is now running a shuttle bus that picks up riders from BART.

The motor coach picks up riders from the Concord/Martinez BART Station at 9 to 9:15 a.m., transporting them to the Napa Valley Wine Train station. There, guests will board the Wine Train to experience a three-hour, 36-mile round-trip journey from downtown Napa to St. Helena. Along the way, guests learn about the Napa Valley while enjoying lunch with optional beverage pairings. At 4:15 to 4:30 p.m., guests board the bus and return to the North Concord/Martinez BART station.

The cost is $30 per person for round-trip bus ride. Advance reservations are required.
