Why choose goTrain?
Davis is fortunate to have its own train station Downtown, connecting the Aggie Community from the Bay Area, Sacramento and all the way up to Auburn via Amtrak's "Capitol Corridor." All Capitol Corridor trains are equipped with luxury seating, food cars, and Wi-Fi, allowing you to get a head start on morning emails or just relax while you commute. Train travel as a work commute option is becoming more popular for students, staff and faculty that live farther from campus and are looking to save time without giving up comfort for their commute.
If you are able to ride the train as your primary commute, we encourage you to give it a try and see if it's in your budget. Join the goClub as a goTrain member and be a part of the club with others looking for a quick, low-stress commute.
