Pandemic Still Depressing Capitol Corridor Ridership

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to depress ridership in California’s Capitol Corridor.

The Capitol Corridors Joint Powers Authority said ridership in July was 18,382 passengers, down 87.5 percent compared with July 2019s count. Revenue fell 87.3 percent to $400,636.

“We continue to operate at 55 percent of pre-COVID-19 service levels and are carefully considering the service level needed for current and near-term projected demand,” CCJPA Executive Director Robert Padgette wrote in a report.

The agency said it is still working on several projects that will allow for expanded service in the future, including the Sacramento to Roseville Third Track and South Bay Connect project, Padgette wrote.

The Capitol Corridor operates between San Jose and Auburn.
