We’ll Get You Where You Want to Go

The Capitol Corridor route stretches between San Jose and Sacramento/Auburn, with direct service to exciting destinations, as well as Northern California’s premier sports & entertainment venues, including the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, SAP Center in San Jose, Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.

Day trips to Sacramento are easy on the Capitol Corridor—enjoy the ambiance of Old Sacramento, ride bikes on the American River Bicycle Trail, or bring the grandkids to the California State Railroad Museum. You can bring 1 child 2-12 with you for half off the adult fare!

If you’re looking for unique artisan shopping, head to Fourth Street in Berkeley. You’ll find one-of-a-kind shoe and clothing boutiques, locally-crafted gifts, home décor, and specialty bookstores, as well as local dining favorites such as Bette’s Diner, Spenger’s, and Tacubaya.

You can also catch a play or musical in San Francisco. The Capitol Corridor has connecting bus service to the city, plus direct connections at the Richmond and Oakland Coliseum stations to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), which has several stations in downtown San Francisco, conveniently located near world-class shopping, museums, and tourist attractions.

Let us do the driving while you relax and enjoy the view. It’s a low-stress way to get out and get away.
