2009-2010 Draft Business Plan & Public Workshops
The CCJPA has released a draft version of its 2009-2010 Business Plan.
Members of the community are invited to provide input and comments on
this draft.
In conjunction with this release, Capitol Corridor will be holding
public workshops to discuss the business plan, as well as future plans
for the Capitol Corridor.

the Business Plan

Upcoming Track Work
Project Overview: From Mid-February through Mid-March Union Pacific
will be upgrading track infrastructure between the Suisun/Fairfield
and Davis stations, installing new ties at their own expense. This is
the third installment of a multi-year track upgrade project between
Oakland and Sacramento, designed to keep the railroad in good
condition so trains can operate more reliably.
Affected Trains & Motorcoaches: During the course of the track work,
some morning and early afternoon Capitol Corridor trains will not
operate between Sacramento, Davis and Suisun/Fairfield. Instead,
connecting buses will carry passengers between these stations; trains
will operate on the remainder of the route on a modified schedule,
which is currently under development. Additionally, some trains are
expected to be suspended completely during the work period to give
Union Pacific more time on the tracks. Most Capitol Corridor
motorcoach/train connections are expected to accommodate the temporary
schedule during this track work project.
Availability of Finalized Temporary Timetable: Amtrak and Capitol
Corridor staff are still in the process of reviewing individual train
and bus schedules in relation to this track work project. We hope to
release the final schedule on the Capitol Corridor website
www.capitolcorridor.org by the end of January. Printed schedules will
be distributed to staffed stations as soon as the schedule is
finalized. Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and
