Get Ready for Bike to Work Day 2017!

April 28, 2017

The Capitol Corridor has long provided bike-friendly accommodations on board our trains and promoted biking as a complement to our service. Both biking and train travel provide more sustainable and enjoyable alternatives to driving, and the combination of the two allows for an even better travel experience! On Thursday, May 11, Capitol Corridor will demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the biking community at various Bike to Work Day events on board our trains and along the route.

On Board “Cappy Hour”
Capitol Corridor will host an official Bike to Work Day Happy Hour (or as we like to call it, “Cappy Hour”), featuring discounted drinks on board all trains in service between 4 and 8pm. Plus, on Train 542 from San Jose to Sacramento and Train 545 from Sacramento to Oakland, we’ll have complimentary food in the Café Car! Staff will also be on hand to answer your questions about bringing your bike on board the Capitol Corridor. As always, bikes are welcome and can be stored in our bike storage areas. To learn more about bringing bikes on the train, visit the Bikes On Board page of our website.

Capitol Bike Fest in Sacramento
On the same day, members of the Capitol Corridor staff will be in Sacramento at the Capitol Bike Fest. We’ll be one of over 40 exhibits providing information on bicycles, rides, fitness, transit, and more. The event will take place from 11am to 1pm on the West Lawn of the State Capitol, at 10th St. and Capitol Ave. If you’re in the area, be sure to pay us a visit!

Exploring the Suisun Marsh from the Suisun City/Fairfield Station

April 16, 2017

The stretch of the Capitol Corridor route between Martinez and Davis is one of the prettiest, and just looking out the window it’s easy to see that nature is alive and well here. Most passengers never experience the Suisun Marsh first-hand though as they zip past the Suisun/Fairfield station on the way to Davis and Sacramento to the east, or Bay Area destinations to the west.

Chickens Take the Spotlight at the Tour de Cluck

June 2, 2015

Many people come to Davis to experience the lively downtown, the university vibe, and…the chickens? That’s right, in Davis there’s actually an annual event that involves biking around the city to check out backyard chicken coops. The Tour de Cluck, now in its sixth year, was on Saturday, May 30 and gave Davis residents, as well as out-of-towners, the opportunity to learn more about sustainable agriculture, admire chicken coop design, and exchange tips for raising these backyard birds.
