There are many sustainable and enjoyable alternatives to driving; the Capitol Corridor is one, and biking is another— together, they’re a match made in heaven! We have long offered bike-friendly accommodations on board our trains, and more recently expanded convenient bike storage at our stations as well. One in ten Capitol Corridor riders also rides a bike as part of their travel, and that number is growing! In May, we demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the Northern Californian biking community at Bike to Work Day events on board our trains and along the route.
The Capitol Corridor is excited to announce that BikeLink eLockers are now available at 15 of our stations: Auburn, Roseville, Sacramento, Davis, Fairfield-Vacaville, Suisun-Fairfield, Martinez, Richmond (shared with BART), Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland Jack London, Oakland Coliseum (shared with BART), Hayward, Fremont, and Santa Clara-Great America! Passengers can ride their bike to a station, safely store it, and hop aboard the train.

With 17 stations between downtown San Jose and Auburn in the Sierra foothills, the Capitol Corridor train route offers serious cyclists in Northern California access to some of the best cycling in the state. All of the Capitol Corridor trains accommodate bicycles, making it easy to get out for a road bike trip through wine country, alongside babbling creeks, up through hills, and beyond.
Bring your bikes (they’re welcome on board!) and enjoy a weekend celebrating all things pedal-powered in Oakland and San Jose. For something a little more low key, check out the Art Book Fair in San Francisco. There are so many fun things to do all along the Capitol Corridor this weekend!

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.
