Bring Your Bike Aboard
All trains on the Capitol Corridor are equipped with a limited number of bicycle racks, allowing you to bring your bike onboard as unboxed, carry-on baggage. It's an easy and convenient way to take your bike with you.
Follow in the footsteps of California’s dreamers, from the gold rushers of the 1840s to the Silicon Valley innovators of the 21st century. Enjoy fast, traffic-free travel across Northern California, with stops that put you just steps away from the heart of government, technology and oenology. Bring your bike and blaze your own trail through Sacramento and the other dynamic cities of the Bay Area.
“California presented to people a new model for the American dream...the willingness to gamble on the future.”
