Rider Tip: Save on Travel with Discount, Multi-Ride Tickets


Do you find yourself enjoying multiple rides on the Capitol Corridor several times a month, or more? Are you still buying single-trip tickets? You can save up to 40% on your Capitol Corridor travel by switching to a convenient monthly pass, or a 10-Ride/45-Day pass. The monthly pass offers ultimate flexibility and the greatest discount, allowing frequent, regular riders unlimited travel during a given calendar month. If you’re not an everyday rider, but you still take the train several times a month, you can purchase a 10-ride ticket, which is good for 10 discounted one-way trips during a 45-day period.
