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!
