Bus-Only Service - Senate Bill 742

Bus-Only Service - Senate Bill 742

Passage of Senate Bill 742 for Bus-Only Service
On January 1, a number of new state bills went into effect, and one in particular impacts the Capitol Corridor. Senate Bill 742 allows Amtrak, a joint powers authority, or any public or private transit operator to provide bus service to passengers without a train ticket. As some of you may be aware, travel on Capitol Corridor’s connecting bus service – with a couple of exceptions – requires that itineraries also include a train segment. The passage of Senate Bill 742 opens up new opportunities for bus-only ticketing. We are actively working with the San Joaquins, which shares many bus routes with our service, to evaluate potential routes for this opportunity, and with Amtrak on implementation. Please stay tuned for updates.
