Altamont Corridor Express announced Monday a one-year partnership with the San Francisco 49ers to get Tracy fans to every home game this season.

The new home of the Niners, Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, includes an ACE train stop. Parking at the 69,000-seat stadium is expected to cost $40. A round-trip ticket on the ACE train for each of the 10 home games — including two preseason matchups — will cost $30 from the Tracy ACE Station at 4800 Tracy Blvd., discounted from the $34 normal roundtrip ticket.

ACE Safety and Security Coordinator Steve Walker said the Tracy lot is equipped with security cameras for those who take advantage of the free parking there. Walker added that there would be no alcohol allowed on trains to Levi’s Stadium but that the Board of Directors might reconsider that policy if they decided to renew the partnership with the 49ers next season.

ACE is providing only one train each direction on game day Sundays, and Walker said that if a game was delayed or ran late, the return train must leave at the scheduled time and not wait for the end of the game.

As of Wednesday, ACE reported selling 107 tickets in the first 48 hours.

Riders can get ticket information, including a schedule of departure times for the various game start times, on the ACE website.

The first preseason game is Aug. 17. The 49ers will face the Denver Broncos to open Levi’s Stadium.
