Rider Stories

We're retired in Roseville. We sometimes go to the City...you know, like in the past when families would get on the train or a carriage and go into town for supplies. We get up early, board Amtrak at approximately 7am, and get to San Francisco about 9:30. It's exciting to see the...

On Sunday, May 27th, I used one of my 10-Ride tickets available to travel from Oakland Coliseum to Sacramento. The Oakland A’s had just defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 in a pitchers duel, in which Frankie Montas got the win, with a little help via a homerun from his Catcher, Jonathan Lucroy....

My favorite time on the Capitals Corridor has to be when I took my girls to San Jose from Sacramento. First time on the train and their eyes lit up. They loved the food cart and the beautiful scenery. We played games, took a nap and made some beautiful memories on the train.

The Capitol Corridor functions as its own mini metropolis. I have been riding the train to Davis for my PhD in psychology for the past two years and have met policy makers, countless professors, several 8-year-olds on fieldtrips, and at least one celebrity. On a trip not too long ago, I looked over...

My favorite trip was my first trip from Sacto to SF. Since I became disabled, I lost my confidence in doing things that I loved, especially traveling by myself. Taking this trip solo helped me gain confidence again. The ride itself was very surreal. I left very early saw so I was able to watch...
