Thank you for riding Capitol Corridor!
Whether you're a daily rider, or a few-times-a-week rider, this section offers helpful hints for your train riding experience
For our frequent riders, we offer both a convenient monthly pass, as well as a 10-Ride/45-Day pass, both at a significant discount off of the standard fare.
10-Ride (45-Day) Ticket
10-Ride (45-Day) tickets are good for 10 discounted one-way trips, valid for a 45-day period. More than one person can travel on a Ten-Ride (45-Day) ticket.
A monthly ticket is good for unlimited discounted rides between stations named on the ticket or any station located between the two endpoints (stations) listed on the ticket and is valid during the calendar month for which it is issued.
Show Your Ticket
Please be ready to present your ticket and valid photo ID to the conductor once you are seated, or to the motorcoach bus driver at the time of boarding. Even if you are a daily rider, and hold a multi-ride ticket, you must still present that ticket to the conductor or driver. If you are making connections between the train and bus, you must show your ticket for each segment of travel. More on Ticket Policies >

All stations have electronic message signs at the platform that provide estimated arrival information for trains. You can also check on train status by phone (1-877-9-RIDECC, 1-877-974-3322) or the internet. Check Train Status >
