Capitol Corridor and the Oakland A’s Team Up for Rail Safety Month Video

Stomper in video

Capitol Corridor takes rail safety very seriously, and for Rail Safety Month this September we’ve produced a video to highlight lifesaving tips to follow when driving or walking near railroad tracks. While the message of the video is serious, we wanted it to be fun and engaging, so we enlisted the mascot of the Oakland A’s, Stomper, to be the star. We think Stomper did an amazing job, and we hope you’ll watch and share the video.

New Emeryville Parking Procedures Going into Effect

Emeryville Station

As passengers who park at the Emeryville station are aware, the station parking lot closed in April 2015, and passengers are now parking at the adjacent Terraces Parking Garage. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working with parking management to streamline the parking process and ensure a consistent fee structure for daily riders. Starting Labor Day Weekend, we will be introducing a small change to the parking validation process, plus a $5 maximum daily fee for Capitol Corridor and other Amtrak passengers. Click here for details on parking at the Emeryville station.

Rider Tip: Look Both Ways

Look both ways

September is Rail Safety Month in California, and we want to remind everyone about the importance of being extra cautious around railroad tracks. Remember to always look for trains in both directions! Just because one train has passed by doesn’t mean you’re safe. A train could be coming from the other direction, and you’ll never know unless you check both sides.
