August 4-5 and August 11-12, 2012 – Bus Bridge between Sacramento and Davis stations

Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR), in conjunction with the City of Sacramento will be relocating tracks at the Sacramento station as part of the Sacramento Railyards project – affecting all weekend trains traveling between the Sacramento and Davis stations. This is the first phase of a two-phase project. Please read below for further information.

Bus Bridge: During this weekend track relocation project, all weekend trains will be bus-bridged between the Sacramento and Davis stations.*

This means connecting buses will carry passengers between those two stations. Buses will operate as close as possible to the published weekend train schedule times between these two stations, honoring Capitol Corridor rail tickets. The following trains are expected to be bus-bridged:

Westbound Capitol Corridor trains 723, 727, 733, 737, 741, 743, 745, 747, 749, 751

Eastbound Capitol Corridor trains 720, 724, 728, 732, 734, 736, 738, 744, 746, 748

*All trains will be bus-bridged with the exception of Trains 729 and 742 with service to Auburn, Rocklin and Roseville.

Unaccompanied Minors [Children 15 and younger]: Please be aware that unaccompanied children will not be permitted to transfer between trains and buses for the bus bridge connections between Sacramento and Davis indicated above and as specified in the Amtrak Unaccompanied Minor Policy.

Bicycle Advisory: Due to limited space aboard the motorcoach buses used for the bus bridge, Capitol Corridor strongly discourages cyclists from traveling with bicycles on affected trains between Sacramento and Davis August 4-5 and August 11-12, 2012.
