While FY2020 saw Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) responding to the initial stages of COVID-19, in FY2021 CCJPA found itself still grappling with the pandemic’s ongoing effects. Public health conditions necessitated continued travel and social restrictions early in FY2021. With the rollout of vaccines starting in January 2021, we planned for an anticipated ridership recovery. Federal and State support aided in the ability to increase service levels from 16 to 22 daily trains; restore Café Car service for all trains; and reach new milestones with projects that support the short- and long-term vision of the Capitol Corridor service. Despite the challenges our service faced due to the pandemic, FY2021 is a year in which we never stopped our service for even one day; reclaimed a 90% on-time performance (OTP) standard; created direct daily service between Auburn and San Jose; and came together with the leaders from San Joaquin Joint Powers Authority (SJJPA) and Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor (LOSSAN) to reassure our collective riders of the resiliency of California intercity rail.
