The Capitol Corridor will add back some of its train service it was forced to reduce in March when shelter-in-place orders went into effect. The agency is also seeking input via a survey.

On Monday, June 1, the Capitol Corridor will increase its current schedule frequency from five to eight weekday round trips, which represents just over half of the Capitol Corridor’s normal, pre-COVID weekday service level.

The increased rail schedule includes the return of service between Auburn and Sacramento. Weekend service will remain at five round trips, and schedule times will be modified to align with ridership demand.

Since March 21, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Capitol Corridor has been running five round trips, seven days a week, to accommodate those passengers who rely on the service for essential trips.
