At the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA), we know that a majority of you travel many hours a week on our trains, and to some of you, the train may even feel like a community. In that spirit of community, we want to make sure everyone feels welcome on board the train. To that end, we need your help in making sure seats are available for all Capitol Corridor riders. Some of you have probably noticed that trains are getting more crowded, and there are new faces on board. Ridership on the Capitol Corridor trains has, in fact, increased systemwide by 10% over the last three years, with some peak period trains experiencing much higher rates of growth. Despite higher ridership, we know from booking data that our trains have enough seats to accommodate all passengers. As such, we are asking everyone to make sure the seats next to you are clear of personal belongings and available for other passengers. More Capitol Corridor’s “One Ticket, One Seat” Policy

According to Nancy Sheehan, California’s state coordinator for Operation Lifesaver, California is #1 in the country for trespasser casualties along railroad tracks and #2 for fatalities at public grade crossings. Even more worrisome is the fact that trespasser and grade crossing fatalities are on the rise. From 2015 to 2016, according to Operation Lifesaver, trespasser casualties went up by 38%, and grade crossing fatalities, increased by 11% in the state.
