Amtrak Thruway bus in California, 2015.

Passengers who have just deboarded a Capitol Corridor train wait to board an Amtrak California Thruway bus. Amtrak offers an extensive system of Thruway bus connections throughout California with direct train/bus transfers at train stations serving the Capitol Corridor, Pacific Surfliner and San Joaquin routes. This includes direct connections for many off-line cities in Southern California, the Sacramento Valley, the Bay Area, Northern California and Nevada.

Amtrak Thruway Service provides coordinated train/bus connections, as well as through fares and ticketing. Thruway service connections in California are funded by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

The Capitol Corridor route is primarily financed and operated in partnership with the State of California. It is managed by the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA), which partners with Amtrak, the Union Pacific Railroad, Caltrans and the communities comprising the CCJPA to continue development of a cost-effective, viable and safe intercity passenger rail service.
