To say that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruption is an understatement. As people all over abide by the shelter-in-place order, we’ve seen Capitol Corridor ridership decline by 90 to 95%. This has forced us to drastically cut back service. Our reduced schedule of five daily round trips is primarily serving essential workers who rely on us and other transit providers to get where they need to go.
If there is any silver lining to this crisis, it’s that running less service has allowed us to focus on some housekeeping and make headway on longer-term capital projects that are not funded by fare revenue. More Maintenance and Cleaning Remain Top Priority During Coronavirus Downtime
