September is Rail Safety Month

Safety Month

While rail safety is a critical issue every single day of the year, September is officially Rail Safety Month. On August 29, Capitol Corridor staff joined rail safety partners, including California Operation Lifesaver (CAOL), Union Pacific, and Amtrak, to kick off this important public outreach initiative at the Robert J. Cabral Amtrak Station in Stockton. Pictured above are students from the Stockton Public Safety Academy, along with CAOL’s mascot, ST3. Rail safety is a priority for all of us at the Capitol Corridor, this month and everyday! Please help spread this important message by checking out our safety tips and video and sharing them with friends and family.


Who Rides the Capitol Corridor?

Did you know that almost three quarters of riders get to our stations using some mode of transportation other than driving alone? (kudos!) Each summer, the Capitol Corridor conducts an on board survey of passengers to learn more about who rides our trains and buses, how they access our service, and what motivates them to take the Capitol Corridor. Check out our survey summary for more interesting facts about our ridership!
