Football season is here, and whether your preference is college or pro, the Capitol Corridor has your transportation covered, from the preseason “warm-up” games of summer, to the colder winter match-ups. Of the Capitol Corridor’s 18 stations, four of them provide service to Northern California’s major sporting venues! Read our guide to travelling by train to see the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, and Cal Bears in action this season.
Kick off the weekend with Lunar New Year celebrations in San Francisco and Oakland or savor the taste of bacon dishes in San Jose. There are so many reasons not to stay home this weekend and get on the Capitol Corridor!
As a transportation partner of Super Bowl 50 being held on Sunday, February 7, at Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, Capitol Corridor will be operating special gameday service to help fans get to the action. If you’re lucky enough to be holding a ticket to the game and plan on taking the Capitol Corridor to Levi’s Stadium, follow these 10 travel tips for a safe and comfortable trip:
- Book your round-trip ticket online, in advance, at
www.capitolcorridor.org/SB50 or via the Amtrak mobile app.
- If you’re traveling any other day than Sunday, February 7, be sure to use our regular schedule for planning your trip.
- Arrive at the train station at least half an hour early.
- Be safe and wait behind the yellow safety line.
- Check the NFL website for guidelines on what you can and cannot bring into the game.
- To ensure space for everyone on the train, use only one seat per person and store your personal bags and items under the seat or in the overhead racks.
- Have your paper or electronic ticket ready to show the conductor.
- If you move seats, take the seat check provided by the conductor with you.
- Gather your personal items and be prepared to get off at the Santa Clara/Great America Station, which is after the Fremont Station. Personal belongings may not be left on the train.
- Give yourself plenty of time to get back to the Santa Clara/Great America Station after the game, and exit the stadium through Gate F which is closest to the train station.
