The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is raising health concerns here and across the globe. The state of California is now under an emergency “shelter-in-place” order, which has resulted in a sharp ridership decline.
The Capitol Corridor is currently operating on a temporary, reduced train and bus schedule that went into effect on Saturday, March 21. This schedule allows us to manage the crisis, while maintaining core service for those essential workers who are exempt from the orders and rely on the Capitol Corridor to get where they need to go.
In an effort to ensure our customers have the most current information about how we are responding to and being impacted by this crisis, we are updating this page regularly with news about our service, how we’re keeping trains and buses clean, and how riders can change or cancel tickets.
