At the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority CCJPA), safety is our top priority – for our passengers, our staff, and members of the communities along our route. Safety is a big part of what we do every day. We know you don’t often hear about these “behind the scenes” safety and security efforts, so we thought it would be helpful to share a quick overview of what we’re doing to keep our service safe and sound.

“It was a beautiful day. The train was a small train – a locomotive I think, with no more than three or four cars, single level.” explained Hubert Hanrahan, Capitol Corridor’s retired Chief Transportation Officer who, in December 1991, was a conductor on board the Capitol Corridor’s very first run. “The rest is history,” he went on to reflect. “It’s been very successful.”
The Capitol Corridor train passes through 170 miles of some of Northern California’s most beautiful landscape. In October and November 2016, we gave riders the opportunity to showcase their favorite views along the route by entering our photo contest “Outside My Window.” The contest ended on November 5, and our winners have been selected by popular vote and notified. We had over two hundred excellent submissions, and after the two-week voting period, these are the five images that came out on top.
