In addition to the areas walkable from our train stations, you can also take advantage of our dedicated bus connections (or use other convenient transit options) to reach Northern California’s top aquatic destinations.
More Five Places to Get Out on the Water Along the Capitol Corridor Route
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.

What comes to mind when you think of city living? The scene probably doesn’t involve lush greenery alongside fresh bodies of water stirring with wildlife. But that’s exactly what you can experience just steps from some of our stations! Fortunately, state- and federally- protected nature reserves keep many vulnerable habitats a priority amidst all the surrounding urban development. And whether it’s Earth Day (April 22) that’s raising your eco-antenna, or you’re a year-round outdoor enthusiast seeking new adventures, anytime is a good time to explore and appreciate our local natural wonders. Cruise on the Capitol Corridor to get up close and personal with some of the awe-inspiring ecosystems along our route, listed here from south to north.
