Capitol Corridor Shatters Ridership Records

February 11, 2020

The Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) today released its Annual Performance Report for Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) highlighting five straight years of record-breaking ridership and revenue. Ridership on Northern California’s popular intercity passenger rail service hit an all-time high of 1,777,136 riders and $38.03 million in revenue.

“Five straight years of record-breaking ridership and revenue show more and more travelers in the San Francisco Bay Area/Sacramento megaregion prefer train travel over driving,” CCJPA Board Chair Rebecca Saltzman said. Our increasing popularity reflects not only the continuation of a strong economy in Northern California, but also our commitment to delivering a ‘first-class’ customer experience for all passengers.”

To build upon this success, and to ensure the Capitol Corridor’s place as a premier travel choice for future generations, the CCJPA is making progress on infrastructure and safety projects and service expansion goals. To maintain its FY19 90 percent customer satisfaction ratings, CCJPA is dedicated to delivering enhancements to improve customer service, such as upgrading its free Wi-Fi later in 2020. These efforts aim to maintain Capitol Corridor as a safe, quality, convenient, cost-effective and flexible option for years to come.
