From the Blog: Trains, Planes and No Automobiles – A European Vacation Made Easy on the Capitol Corridor

European Vacation

It’s always great to hear from passengers about their travel experiences. This summer, we had an especially good one from Mike Sullivan, who planned an epic three-week trip to Europe with 11 neighbors. Knowing that traffic between Sacramento and San Francisco would be a problem, they decided instead to take the Capitol Corridor train from downtown Sacramento to the Richmond Station, where they transferred to BART for service to SFO. Read our latest blog post to hear more about Mike Sullivan’s trip and how easy it is to start your next vacation adventure on the Capitol Corridor.
