  • A fresh, modern, mobile-friendly design with simpler navigation
  • Booking engine prominently displayed on the homepage
  • A new “Alerts” tab with a live feed of service alerts that subscribers currently receive via email and/or text
  • New content areas, including a “First-Time Rider” and “Sports & Entertainment” section

Your Ticket to Warriors/Sharks Championship Action

Warriors and Sharks

With both the Warriors and the Sharks vying for their respective championship titles, keep in mind that Capitol Corridor provides direct, hassle-free service to both home venues – Oracle Arena and the SAP Center in San Jose. Some of the home games start earlier than normal, so it’s possible to take the train there and back. Read more about how Capitol Corridor can get you to the NBA and NHL playoffs.
