Getting to San Francisco
The Capitol Corridor train travels along a 170-mile route between Auburn/Sacramento and San Jose, but includes dedicated bus connections to extend its service to many more great destinations, including San Francisco. You have three options for getting into the city of San Francisco after your ride on Capitol Corridor:
- Dedicated Bus: From Emeryville, a dedicated Capitol Corridor bus connection transports Capitol Corridor train passengers into San Francisco, making stops at the Temporary Transbay Terminal, PIER 39, the Financial District, and the Westfield San Francisco Centre. Note: not all San Francisco stops are served by every bus connection; be sure to check schedules here. The $19 fare covers both the train and bus portions of the one-way trip.
- BART*: Passengers can use Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) at the Richmond Station or Oakland Coliseum Station to connect to the Capitol Corridor. Check BART schedules, routes, and fares here. BART fares may be paid with a Clipper card, available for purchase on board Capitol Corridor trains in the Cafe Car.
- Ferry*: From Oakland's Jack London Square, take the San Francisco Bay Ferry for a more relaxed and scenic journey.*
* Note: additional transit fares apply for BART and the San Francisco Bay Ferry. Learn more about Capitol Corridor's transit connections here.
