Capitol Corridor has extended its 30 percent discount for all one-way and round trips through June 30 due to the continued rise in gas prices.

The discount, launched as part of Capitol Corridor’s 30th anniversary celebration, was initially set to expire at the end of March.

“Getting around anywhere in California these days is more expensive than ever, so we want to do our part to ease the burden,” said Rob Padgette, Managing Director of the Capitol Corridor. “With spacious seating, free wi-fi, and a Café Car, the train is one of the most enjoyable ways to travel throughout Northern California. By extending the 30 percent travel discount, we hope people will look to the Capitol Corridor as a great option for their next work and/or leisure trip.”  

To get the discount, riders must purchase discounts online at Discount Offers & Travel Promotions or on the Amtrak mobile app (enter code V530). The offer cannot be purchased via a station agent. 

The promotion is valid for 30 percent off the regular, full adult fare and cannot be combined with other fare discounts such as California Everday Discounts. Also, discounts cannot be applied to multi-ride fares such as monthly, 10-day ride and student 6-ride tickets.
