Looking for ways to keep the little ones entertained while sheltering in place? How about some coloring and activities from the Capitol Corridor Activity Book?
Wednesday, April 22, is Earth Day. Of course, this year, the day that marks the anniversary of the modern environmental movement looks a little different, as many events have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. That, however, is not going to stop us from celebrating! This year, we have put together a list of virtual Earth Day activities so you can still get your fix of nature, learn something new, and play your part in protecting the Earth while protecting each other.
Coalition of transportation agencies join in solidarity to honor heroic workers across the region by giving two horn blasts at 12:00 p.m. PT
The Capitol Corridor and Amtrak are joining other regional train, bus, and ferry operators to participate in #SoundTheHorn – a coordinated effort to simultaneously sound their vehicle horns at 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 16, to honor heroic transportation and other essential workers across the country.

To say that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruption is an understatement. As people all over abide by the shelter-in-place order, we’ve seen Capitol Corridor ridership decline by 90 to 95%. This has forced us to drastically cut back service. Our reduced schedule of five daily round trips is primarily serving essential workers who rely on us and other transit providers to get where they need to go.
If there is any silver lining to this crisis, it’s that running less service has allowed us to focus on some housekeeping and make headway on longer-term capital projects that are not funded by fare revenue. More Maintenance and Cleaning Remain Top Priority During Coronavirus Downtime
As we approach a second month of quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope you and your loved ones are doing well and staying safe.
For those who are using the Capitol Corridor service for travel to essential work – about 300 to 400 riders a day – we want to keep you in the loop of any changes that may impact your travel plans. More BART Weekday Service Reduction Starting April 8
