Amtrak to offer Oakland Coliseum service via Capitol Corridor

On June 6, the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority will begin operating Amtrak service to the Oakland Coliseum.

The authority — which operates Amtrak service between Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose and northern California cities, and the Central Valley — will open a new platform adjacent to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Oakland Coliseum/Airport station. A ramp connecting the platform to a pedestrian overpass will enable passengers to access the coliseum or BART service.

Passengers also can use the platform to connect to Oakland International Airport via AirBART shuttles.
