CC Rail Mail: Earth Day, Track Your Train in Real Time, Corridor Conversations Webinar, Cappy Hour, and MORE!

April 15, 2024

Earth Month
Every Day is Earth Day

This Earth Day, it’s important for everyone to appreciate this beautiful world. Our daily choices can have a huge impact on the health and well-being of both ourselves, and our planet. So during Earth Month, and every day, consider riding Capitol Corridor to work or exploring a new area of Northern California.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is one of the seven greenhouse gases the Air Resources Board (ARB) is responsible to monitor and regulate in order to reduce emissions. Transportation is the single largest source of CO2 in California, which is primarily comprised of on-road travel. Only 2% of travelers commute by transit in California and 12% commute by transit in the Bay Area. By taking the train, your travel is 31% more efficient than a passenger car. These small actions can inspire others to do the same, which in turn promotes increased environmental longevity.

Track Your Train in Real Time!

Recently, Capitol Corridor took a big leap forward in helping riders get the train status information they need, right where they are. By making real-time train status available on third-party travel planning mobile apps that show live train location on a map as well as ETAs for upcoming train stations, riders get the information they need right at their fingertips. Apps that now show Capitol Corridor live status include: Transit App, Moovit, and Google Maps.
