Welcome to South Bay Connect, a key project identified within the 2018 California State Rail Plan, Alameda County Transportation Commission’s Rail Strategy, as well as the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority’s (CCJPA’s) 2014 Vision Plan Update and the 2016 Vision Implementation Plan. South Bay Connect would relocate the Capitol Corridor passenger rail service between Oakland and San Jose for a shorter more direct route.

The Capitol Corridor service is a critical component of the Northern California intercity passenger rail system that provides a more reliable alternative to congested corridors along Interstates 80, 680 and 880. CCJPA is a partnership among six local transit agencies and provides fast, reliable, and affordable train service to 18 stations in eight Northern California counties.
