Now Available: 25% Discount on Travel to Raiders Home Game
Oakland Raiders fans, take the train to the game! The Coliseum Station is located right next to the stadium, making it the most convenient and enjoyable way to get to the game. Plus, you can save 25% on travel when you take the Capitol Corridor to see the silver and black in action. Grab a snack on the way there – the Café Car offers a wide variety of light meals and beverages, including beer, wine, and spirits so you can start the tailgate early!
With Our New Ad Campaign, “Every Ride Has a Story”
This month, we’re launching a new advertising campaign to give the Capitol Corridor a fresh, fun look and feel. It’s called “Every Ride Has a Story”, and while it is aimed at getting new people to hop aboard the Capitol Corridor, it’s also about everyone who already uses our service. The Capitol Corridor can take you to some fantastic places, but what sets us apart (in our humble opinion) is how enjoyable the ride can be. “Every Ride Has a Story” is all about the stories and memories you can make with loved ones while you’re on the train and when you get to your destination. Be on the lookout for our colorful campaign characters – you’ll see them on billboards along I-80, on various social media and digital properties, and in Sacramento, you’ll hear us on the radio. Coming soon, we’ll also be launching an “Every Ride Has a Story” web page featuring real stories from our riders, so stay tuned!
