Capitol Corridor trains offer discounts

This summer, Capitol Corridor trains will be less expensive for seniors riding mid-week, families traveling on weekends and A’s fans going to the Oakland Coliseum.

“Now through the end of October, the Capitol Corridor is giving senior passengers, families and baseball fans a fare break,” said Bob Franklin, Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority chairman, said in a news release. “… You can save gas and money by ditching your cars and taking advantage of our Kids Ride Free on Weekends, Seniors Half-off Discount program or our 25 percent fare discount for A’s fans traveling to regular season home games.”

Kids Ride Free on Weekends

This promotion allows children age 15 and under to ride for free on weekends now through Oct. 30. Free rides are applicable for up to two children who are accompanied by a full-fare paying adult. Passengers must use code V486 when buying tickets to get the Kids Ride Free discount. Children traveling alone are not entitled to a children’s discount.

Senior Half-Off Discount

Seniors age 62 and over can save 50 percent off their travel aboard Capitol Corridor trains if they travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, now through Oct. 27. To take advantage of this offer, use discount code V730 when buying your ticket and select “adult” as passenger type when booking travel.

A’s games discount

To receive the discount on rides to A’s home games, use code H855 when purchasing tickets. This discount is valid for travel to Coliseum Station only on dates of Oakland A’s home games.

Tickets for all of these promotions may be purchased online at http://capitolcorridor.org, at a staffed station, a Quik-Trak ticket vending kiosk or onboard if boarding from an unstaffed station. For complete details on Kids Ride Free on Weekends, the mid-week Senior Half-off Discount and the 25 percent discount for A’s home games, go to http://capitolcorridor.org or call 1-877-974-3322 for assistance.

The Capitol Corridor intercity rail service was made possible by Californians who voted to provide capital funding for passenger trains in 1990. The Capitol Corridor serves 16 stations along the 170-mile corridor from Placer County to the Bay Area. An extensive, dedicated motorcoach network provides bus connections to the train. Together, these systems serve the second-largest urban service area in the Western U.S.

In July 1998, management of the service was transferred to the CCJPA, which oversees the service with day-to-day management and staff support from San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART). The CCJPA partners with Amtrak, Union Pacific Railroad, Caltrans and the communities comprising the CCJPA. For more information, visit http://capitolcorridor.org.
