Train Service at Roseville Station to be Replaced by Bus Bridge February 4 & 5


Due to track maintenance work, Capitol Corridor Train 729 between Auburn and San Jose will NOT stop and provide service at the Roseville Station train platform on the weekend of February 4 and 5. Instead, passengers will be transported by a bus bridge from Roseville to Sacramento, where they will join Train 729. In order to connect with Train 729 in Sacramento on time, the bus will depart the Roseville Station 30 minutes earlier than Train 729’s regularly scheduled departure.

During the holiday season, the Capitol Corridor sponsored Arnold Adreani Elementary School (part of the Elk Grove Unified School District) for a festive ice skating session at the Downtown Sacramento Holiday Ice Rink. This is the second time the Capitol Corridor has sponsored an elementary school for an ice skating session as part of our community outreach along with spreading holiday cheer. Check out our latest blog post to see pictures from the event.
