The Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority is reporting five straight years of increasing ridership and revenue.

Ridership on Northern California’s intercity passenger rail service hit an all-time high of 1,777,136 riders, $38 million in revenue, with a 90 percent customer satisfaction rating, according to the Authority’s annual performance report for Fiscal Year 2019.

In addition, the Authority is making progress on infrastructure, safety projects and service expansion goals. It plans to deliver enhancements to improve customer service, such as upgrading its free Wi-Fi later this year. The efforts aim to maintain Capitol Corridor as a safe, quality, convenient, cost-effective and flexible option into the future.

The Capitol Corridor is an intercity rail service connecting vibrant urban centers in the Northern California mega region, from the Sacramento capital, to the tech hub of Silicon Valley, and including San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley.
