A celebratory parade and rally will take place on Thursday, June 15, starting at 10am in downtown Oakland. The Capitol Corridor welcomes all fans who want to come to Oakland by train to participate in the festivities!

Getting to the Festivities
The parade starts at 10am on 11th St. at Broadway, though fans are allowed to line up as early as 5am. Event details and a parade map can be found here.
To reach the area where celebrations will be held, passengers can take the Capitol Corridor train directly to the Jack London Square Amtrak Station (2nd & Alice) and walk about 15 minutes from the station to the parade/rally.
Fans can also take the Capitol Corridor to either the Richmond Station or Oakland Coliseum Station and transfer to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to ride directly to the 19th St. or 12th St. BART stations located along Broadway in downtown Oakland. Be prepared for HUGE crowds on BART; read information about their service and tips for riding.
The one-way fare from Richmond to downtown Oakland is $2.90, and from Oakland Coliseum to downtown Oakland it is $1.95. You can buy a $10 value BART ticket in the Capitol Corridor Café Car for $8, with the bonus of avoiding long lines at the BART pay stations!
