Group Travel In Northern California
Schools, community groups, senior centers, alumni groups and service clubs are all discovering that we offer a fast, convenient way to travel in Northern California.
Groups of 20 Passengers or More
If you are traveling with a group of 20 or more, you are eligible for a group discount of 20% off the full fare ticket price. Due to space restrictions, groups of 20 or more traveling together must make an advance reservation with the Capitol Corridor Group Desk. Submit your reservation request at least 21 days in advance of your travel date via fax or through our convenient online form.
Teachers, please refer to our Train Treks for Kids program for your classroom field trip.
- Complete the Group Reservation Request Form
You may submit the form online OR fax to the Capitol Corridor Group Desk at 510.464.6901. If you submit the form online, there is no need to also fax the form.After submitting the request form, adjustments cannot be made—a new request must be submitted for changes to your itinerary.
If your travel is approved for the requested date, you will receive a reservation number and confirmation letter either via fax or email within 6-8 business days. Please provide an alternate date on the Group Reservation Request Form in case your first choice is denied.
- Create a Passenger Name List
Along with your confirmation letter, you will be sent a Passenger Name List, which we ask that you complete and either fax or email back to us at least ten days prior to your trip. List the first and last names of all passengers traveling in your group. After submitting the Passenger Name List, adjustments to the names and number of passengers cannot be made. If necessary, you may travel with fewer passengers than on your reservation, but all passenger names must be accounted for when submitting your Passenger Name List. You will still be responsible for the cost of tickets referenced on your original confirmation letter.
You may either fax or e-mail the Passenger Name List back to the group desk at (510) 464-6901 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Purchase Your Tickets
To purchase your tickets, bring your confirmation letter and a copy of your Passenger Name List to any staffed station, at least seven days prior to your date of travel. If you do not pick up your tickets seven days prior to your reserved trip, your trip will be cancelled. You will be required to pay for the seats you have reserved. No refunds are given after tickets are purchased. Payments are not accepted by phone.
Please pay with cash, a credit card or school/ business check made out to "Amtrak." Personal checks are not accepted.
