An easier ride into San Francisco is now just a barcode away
Capitol Corridor now offers eTicketing for one-way and round-trip tickets. eTickets offer our passengers the convenience of printing their tickets at home, at the office, or on the go, making it easier to get on board and get to where you want to go.

This Friday, Amtrak and Capitol Corridor will be launching eTicketing on the Transbay Motorcoach bus services (San Francisco-Emeryville, San Francisco-Oakland and Oakland-Emeryville), allowing passengers with one-way and round-trip tickets to and from San Francisco to print their tickets at home. As bus drivers adjust to using the new eTicketing devices, it may take a few extra minutes to board passengers on these buses. We ask for your patience as we deploy this new technology on the Route 99 bus service to/from San Francisco.

Multi-ride and group tickets are not included in the current eTicketing program so passengers holding these types of tickets are encouraged to continue to keep your paper ticket in a safe and secure location as it still has value and needs to be presented to obtain a refund or exchange. If you are making connections between the train and bus, please be ready to show your ticket for each segment of travel.
