Amtrak California has been localized to provide a more regional approach to your train travel experience. Moving forward, the San Joaquin Corridor, the Pacific Surfliner, and the Capitol Corridor, now under local Joint Power Authorities’ management, will offer travelers local management of California rail service, which will help to further enhance customer service, ensure efficient use of resources, and allow effective decisions about schedules, on-board amenities, and service expansion. We encourage you to visit each corridor’s website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for travel specials, ticket information, and destinations. Links are below.
Getting around California couldn’t be easier aboard the San Joaquins. From Sacramento and the Bay Area, the San Joaquin travels through California’s Central Valley, with daily round trips to Bakersfield and convenient Thruway bus connections to Los Angeles. Whether you are planning a business trip, a trip to visit family and friends, or a weekend getaway to places like Yosemite or San Francisco, Amtrak California can take you there.
The Pacific Surfliner offers breathtaking views of California’s amazing coastline from San Diego to San Luis Obispo and everywhere in-between. Amenities include comfortable seats, ample legroom, convenient electrical outlets at every seat, and on-board food services at the Sea View Café. Upgrade to Pacific Business Class and enjoy complimentary beverages, snacks, and newspapers. On the Pacific Surfliner you can just sit back, relax, and arrive at your destination refreshed instead of stressed.
The Capitol Corridor provides a convenient alternative to driving along Northern California's congested freeways. With stops in Sacramento, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area, and San Jose/Silicon Valley, as well as free wi-fi, a cafe car, scenic views, and comfortable seats, Capitol Corridor is the way to go!
