Capitol Corridor ridership jumped 10 percent in November


The end of California’s “Furlough Fridays” and a record-breaking Thanksgiving travel weekend helped boost Capitol Corridor ridership 10 percent in November vs. the same period last year. 

Nearly 143,000 people used the northern California intercity passenger-rail service in November compared with 129,294 in November 2009.

Ridership on the line has steadily increased since summer. Capitol Corridor officials attribute the additional passengers to the improving economy, higher customer satisfaction and a 96 percent on-time performance.
