From the Managing Director: Holiday Greetings & Year in Review

It was a great year for Capitol Corridor. Read our Managing Director’s holiday message for a recap of 2015.

Most San Francisco Bus Stops Suspended 1/23-2/12/16

Due to Super Bowl 50 preparations and events in San Francisco leading up to gameday on February 7, 2016 in Santa Clara, Capitol Corridor is suspending bus service to and from the San Francisco bus stops – with the exception of the Transbay Temporary Terminal – between January 23 and February 12, 2016. This will include weekday and weekend service at the following stops: Hyatt/Financial District (SFF), Moscone Center (SFM), Shopping Center (SFS), Civic Center (SFV), and Fisherman’s Wharf (SFW). Buses between Emeryville and San Francisco will run according to their regular schedule; however, they will only drop off and pick up at the Transbay Temporary Terminal. Read here for more information about how the Super Bowl will impact Capitol Corridor service.
