There are a lot of people at the Capitol Corridor who keep the trains running day in and day out, and make sure riders are as happy and informed as possible. There’s one guy on the team though who does more than that. Meet Jim Allison, Manager of Planning. If you take your bike on the train and use our free on board Wi-Fi, you can thank Jim for that, but he’s also our resident dreamer and futurist as he looks down the road, years and even decades ahead, to plan for the services and features of our next generation of riders. Learn a little more about Jim and what he does in our Staff Spotlight interview conducted by Savannah Kuang, the Capitol Corridor’s Climate Corps Fellow.
