Who is the CCJPA

The CCJPA, is a partnership among six transit agencies and two metropolitan planning organizations that share administration and management of the 170 mile Capitol Corridor. CCJPA is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 16 elected officials. The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) provides day-to-day management support to CCJPA. Capitol Corridor services are developed with input from our riders, private and public sector stakeholders, along with the partners who help deliver the Capitol Corridor service – Amtrak, UPRR, Caltrans and the various agencies and communities that make up the Capitol Corridor.

CCJPA contracts with Amtrak to provide passenger rail services. Trains travel on privately-owned UPRR tracks. Thirty-two trains operate daily over 170 miles of track between San Jose and Sacramento with additional service to Auburn.

Since the CCJPA was established, it has expanded into the third busiest intercity rail service in the nation. Thirty-two (32) trains operate daily over 170 miles of track between San Jose and Sacramento with additional service to Auburn. Capitol Corridor service passenger ridership has grown from 463,000 in 1998 to 1,746,397 in 2012.
