Late Train Available for Sacramento Kings Games

Golden 1

On Thursday, October 27, the Sacramento Kings basketball team will host their first regular-season home game versus the San Antonio Spurs, and on Saturday, October 29, they will face the Minnesota Timberwolves. Both games start at 7:30pm and are at the new Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento, just minutes by foot from the Sacramento train station. With our westbound train departing at 10:30pm seven days a week, you’ll be able to travel to and from the games on the Capitol Corridor for a stress-free, traffic-free ride that avoids the hassle and expense of downtown parking. There will not be, however, a Yolobus Y Shuttle heading back to the Davis Station after 10:30pm. For more information about Capitol Corridor’s Golden 1 Center service, click here.

From the Blog: Pumpkin Patches and Microbreweries Along the Capitol Corridor


Nothing says fall like beer and pumpkins, and we’ve got two new blog posts inspired by both. First, there’s “The Ultimate Guide to Microbreweries Along the Capitol Corridor.” It highlights microbreweries near Capitol Corridor stations, along with directions for getting from spot to spot if you’d like to do your own microbrewery pub tour by train. For a more family-friendly Capitol Corridor outing that will get you into the Halloween spirit, check out these pumpkin patches along the Capitol Corridor route.
