September 23, 2021 GMT

Oakland, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To welcome riders on board and promote train ridership, the Capitol Corridor is introducing a 30% discount on one-way and round-trip fares. The travel discount is just the beginning of our celebration of the rail corridor’s 30th anniversary.

In time for fall travel plans, the 30% off discount is available for travel now through December 31, 2021, with no black-out dates or advance-purchase requirement.

“We wanted to find an easy way to welcome both new and seasoned riders on our trains, while also recognizing our upcoming 30th anniversary.” said Rob Padgette, Managing Director of the Capitol Corridor. “The train is one of the safest and most enjoyable ways to travel throughout Northern California. Our hope is that this promotion, together with our ongoing COVID-19 protocols, will give people who are new to the train – or who haven’t used the service in a while – a great reason to give it a try.”
