More than 150,000 cyclists -- about 9% of riders -- bring their bikes on board the train each year.
The Capitol Corridor is primarily a commuter train service with 32 daily trains running between San Jose, California and Sacramento, with stops in Santa Clara, along the East Bay, and along I-80 to Sacramento. Capitol Corridor is managed by BART. Incidentally, onboard the train is the only place you can buy discounted BART tickets. Amtrak Capitol Corridor is funded entirely by the state of California.
