1. Take the Aggie Tailgate Train to Cal Berkeley – September 4
Looking for a fun and easy way to see the Aggies battle the Bears? Ditch the traffic, hop aboard the Capitol Corridor for a comfortable and convenient ride to cheer on your favorite team as the Aggies battle the California Golden Bears.

So join the Aggie Tailgate Train! We’ll have ambassadors on-board to make sure all Aggie fans have an easy travel day from Davis to Richmond and a seamless transfer to BART. Buy your train ticket online or at the station in advance, just be sure to use code V287 to save 20%. This code is only valid on travel to/from Davis.

Aggie fans will be on board Capitol Corridor Train 729 as it departs Davis at 9:25am. Once the train arrives in Richmond, ambassadors will help folks purchase BART tickets at the station and transfer to the BART train. From the Downtown Berkeley BART station, Memorial Stadium is just a short shuttle ride or leisurely stroll away. See you on the train!

2. Show Your Ticket
Please be ready to present your ticket and valid photo ID to the conductor once you are seated, or to the motorcoach bus driver at the time of boarding. Even if you are a frequent rider, hold a multi-ride ticket and are familiar with the conductor or driver, you must still present your ticket. Conductors and drivers are required to check your tickets—it is their job. Please don’t make their jobs difficult for them! If you are making connections between the train and bus, you must be ready to show your ticket for each segment of travel. Tickets are evidence of fare paid and must be surrendered for inspection or cancellation by any conductor or authorized carrier representative.

Please safeguard your tickets as you would cash. Amtrak and Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority are not liable for lost, stolen, misplaced or destroyed tickets. Tickets are required for travel–you cannot travel on lost tickets. To be able to travel, you must repurchase your tickets.

Amtrak and Capitol Corridor are enforcing this policy for both security and revenue tracking purposes. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
