Help! How do I read the schedule?

First, determine if you will be travelling on a weekday or weekend, and which direction you will be going—westbound toward San Jose or eastbound toward Sacramento. Locate your departure and arrival stations, listed vertically along the left side of the chart. Once you have located your stations, simply follow the row across to see all the departure and arrival times for the day. If you follow the column up from your departure or arrival time, you’ll see the respective train numbers. Times that appear in the gray shaded area are for connecting bus service.

If you are unsure if you are reading the schedule correctly, you can go to the home page and enter your travel dates along with the departure and arrival stations to see a list of all the trains for that day. Other Amtrak routes may be listed, so look for Capitol Corridor. You can also call our Call Center (1-877-9-RIDECC) Monday-Friday, 8am – 6pm, for help planning your trip.
