The Amtrak San Joaquin’s train line is considering making improvements to its service to Sacramento – the goal is to align train times to better serve riders who travel to Sacramento for work or play, and to increase the number of daily trains to make it more convenient and efficient. Better train travel options would be great for business and leisure travelers, improve our environment and support business/economic activity.

To do this, we need some quick and easy data on ridership interest and preferences from people who travel or would like to travel to Sacramento by train. That’s why we need your help!

To stop germs and stay healthy, we recommend that passengers also take precautions by:

  • Washing their hands frequently.
  • Carrying hand sanitizing gel for when they are unable to wash their hands.
  • Covering their mouth when coughing or sneezing. Use upper sleeve, not hands when tissues are not available.
  • When sick, staying home from work or school, limiting contact with others to keep from spreading the infection.
