Connecting Bus Service

Connecting Bus Service

The Capitol Corridor operates a dedicated bus service that connects outlying communities to the Capitol Corridor train route. All buses are equipped with roomy, reclining seats, overhead reading lights, and baggage storage space. In some cases, buses are used in lieu of train service. Bus connections are always highlighted in our schedule to differentiate them from trains. All bus trips, except those between Emeryville and San Francisco, require an advance reservation, and with the exception of bus service to/from South Lake Tahoe, connecting bus travel must be made in conjunction with train travel.
