Tooting Our Own Train Whistle

We’ve got a lot to brag about at Capitol Corridor! As of February, 2015, our year-to-date on-time performance was 93.4%—the highest in the Amtrak system. Woot woot! In addition, the monthly customer satisfaction survey for January revealed that 86% of our passengers are “Very Satisfied” with their on-board experience. Another woot woot! Overall, passengers felt comfortable, safe, and well-informed while riding Capitol Corridor. Lastly, we hit an exciting milestone this past week by surpassing 10,000 Facebook fans! Thank you for following and connecting with us on social media. Woot woot!

This success is the result of the efforts between the staff at Capitol Corridor and our partners at Amtrak and Union Pacific Railroad. Together, we work hard to ensure that the overall experience for our passengers, both at the station and on-board the train, is convenient, safe, and enjoyable. Thank you for riding, and we hope to continue providing excellent service!

Courtesy Reminder—One Ticket, One Seat

As you ride the train, please be mindful of fellow passengers by taking up only one seat and keeping your voice at a reasonable indoor level. Leave seats open for others by keeping your feet off the seats and your bags at your feet. If your carry-on items are too big to put at your feet, please store them either in the luggage racks or the overhead bins. Thank you!
