New Funding for South Bay Service Enhancements

Earlier this month, the Capitol Corridor received a State Rail Assistance (SRA) award of $1.4M from the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA). This award, along with funds from additional sources, will be used to plan for a project that will facilitate service to special events at Levi’s Stadium and improve reliability by reducing unforeseen delays in the area.

From the Blog: A Day with Rosie the Riveter

Earlier this month, the Capitol Corridor sponsored a trip to Rosie the Riveter National Park for a group of girls from Citrus Heights.
