Capitol Corridor will increase train service on both weekdays and weekends starting Monday, June 7, in another step toward a return to pre-pandemic service, the transit agency announced.

Starting June 7, weekday trips on Capitol Corridor service between San Jose and Sacramento, with a stop in Richmond, will increase from 16 trips to 22, while weekend trips will increase from 10 to 18. Service frequency between Oakland and San Jose will return to pre-pandemic frequency at 14 trips daily.

Also, Café Car service will be restored with a limited menu.

Capitol Corridor says the new schedule will improve connections with BART at the Richmond Station for better travel options to San Francisco. You can see a preview of the new train schedule and connecting bus schedule.

“The last time the Capitol Corridor increased train service was in June of 2020 when it restored some frequency that had been cut in March 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the agency said. “The schedule was updated again in March of 2021 to improve ontime performance and better meet travel patterns; however, that schedule maintained the June 2020 frequency of service.”
