Thanksgiving Travel Service
The Capitol Corridor is a convenient and relaxing way to visit family and friends during the Thanksgiving holiday week. This is also our busiest travel period, so you’ll want to make your plans in advance and read our Holiday Travel Tips to ensure a smooth and enjoyable ride. For details about the Capitol Corridor’s Thanksgiving week service, including additional connecting bus trips to and from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Chico State, and Humboldt State, check out our recent news article.
Capitol Corridor Implements Critical Safety System, Positive Train Control
We are pleased to announce the achievement of an important safety milestone. On October 24, the Capitol Corridor launched fleet-wide implementation of Positive Train Control, or PTC. PTC is a rail safety system mandated by Congress, and the Capitol Corridor completed testing and began implementation two months ahead of the December 31, 2018 federal deadline. PTC adds an extra layer of security to an already safe system, reflecting the Capitol Corridor’s steadfast commitment to enhancing safety as ridership grows and service expands.
Café Car Discount for Major Service Delays
Effective November 1, the Capitol Corridor will no longer distribute Café Car delay vouchers when trains are delayed 30 minutes or more. Instead, we will offer an immediate 20% discount on Café Car food items (excluding alcohol and sundries). We made this change based on feedback received earlier this year during our public workshops. While we always strive to deliver high on-time performance, we hope that in the event of a long delay, the Café Car discount makes the inconvenience a bit more tolerable.
