Reservations required for all trains on Sunday, Feb. 7
OAKLAND – Football fans throughout the region can sit back, relax and take the Capitol Corridor train to the Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 7. The Capitol Corridor provides direct service to the Santa Clara/Great America Amtrak Station at Levi’s Stadium, the site of Super Bowl 50. Trains are operated by Amtrak and offer spacious, comfortable seating, free wi-fi access, and a fully-stocked Café Car.
On gameday, Sunday, Feb. 7, Capitol Corridor will operate a special, one-day schedule, with over a dozen trains providing service to and from the Santa Clara/Great America Station. Passengers should purchase train tickets online, in advance, at the Capitol Corridor’s Super Bowl web page, <ahref=”http://www.captiolcorridor.org/SB50″>www.captiolcorridor.org/SB50. Tickets may also be purchased from any Amtrak ticket agent or at Amtrak Quik-Trak machines located at stations. Capitol Corridor tickets are not available by telephone.
Super Bowl attendees staying in San Francisco can connect to Capitol Corridor by taking a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train from downtown San Francisco to the Coliseum Station in Oakland on gameday. The Coliseum BART Station is adjacent to the Oakland Coliseum Capitol Corridor/Amtrak Station and provides a seamless connection to the Capitol Corridor train (BART tickets must be purchased separately). Please note that the Capitol Corridor does not accept fare payment with Clipper, the San Francisco Bay Area’s all-in-one fare payment card.
These tips will help ensure a smooth trip to and from Super Bowl 50:
• Security and Screening: Super Bowl 50 attendees must pass through a security and screening area upon arrival at the Santa Clara/Great America Station. Station Ambassadors will be available to assist with directions. Passengers will be required to show their Super Bowl tickets and will be directed to a bag search area for security screening. For information, visit the NFL website.
• Baggage: Be sure to carefully review the security and screening guidelines to know what is allowed to bring into the stadium. Please note that personal belongings may not be left on board Capitol Corridor trains. When traveling aboard the Capitol Corridor, also be sure to know in advance Amtrak’s baggage policy, which allows each person to have two pieces of luggage up to 50lbs each and two carry-on personal items up to 25lbs each.
• After the Game – Passengers who will be making their return trip on the Capitol Corridor should review their return train ticket and leave plenty of time to walk from the stadium to the platform at the Santa Clara/Great America Station. The area around Levi’s Stadium will be crowded, so we recommend leaving for the station about 45 minutes to an hour before your train’s scheduled departure. We also recommend fans exit the stadium via Gate F, which is the stadium gate closest to the train station.
