Serving communities along a scenic route between the Sierra Foothills and the Silicon Valley, the Capitol Corridor is a fun and convenient alternative to driving along the region's congested freeways. With 17 stations, it provides a vital link between Northern California's major hubs -Sacramento, Oakland, Berkeley, and San Jose - along with dedicated bus service to destinations such as San Francisco, Napa, Lake Tahoe, and Santa Cruz. Whatever your destination, you can ride in style and enjoy free Wi-Fi, a Café Car, and spacious seating , all while taking in northern California's unique beauty.

I ride the Capitol Corridor several times a year and invariably enjoy the trip. It beats fighting the traffic on the freeway and offers views of the Bay, bridges, ships and Mount Tam. The crews are friendly and the snack bar food is decent.
