Amtrak California
This guide contains information about all stations on the San Joaquin rail corridor, listed in order from the Bay Area east Stockton, and then south down the San Joaquin Valley to Bakersfield. We have listed directions to the station from the nearest main highway, and the phone numbers of local transit agencies, taxi services, hotels and car rental companies. We have also listed some scenic or tourist attractions in the area. Facilities at the staffed stations, such as snack bars and/or information kiosks, are also shown. In addition, the ticket agents at our stations will be happy to assist you with information on their local area.
Please be aware that reservations are required for most hotel and car rental agencies listed. Unless otherwise indicated, any of the hotels or car rental agencies listed will pick up or drop off passengers at the Amtrak station if prior arrangements are made.
For schedule information, consult the Amtrak California San Joaquin Route schedule folder or the Amtrak California Statewide timetable. Schedule and fare information is also available from Amtrak at the number shown in the station listings, or toll-free at 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245). Information is also available on the World Wide Web at http//www.dot.ca.gov/hq/rail.
Reservations are not required on the San Joaquins. Custom Class seating is available on some trains for a modest fee, and reservations are required for this option. Custom Class service guarantees you a seat with extra leg room, coffee, tea, juice and a newspaper.
Tickets may be purchased at any Amtrak ticket office, at most travel agencies, by mail, or (when boarding at an unstaffed station) from the train conductor. Amtrak does not accept personal checks in California, except from customers age 62 or older. Amtrak accepts all major credit cards at all ticketing locations. Credit cards may be used on board trains for tickets costing $25.00 or more (cash must be used to purchase tickets on board costing less than $25.00).
Most of our trains are equipped with new California Coach and Dining Cars. We have also added a new menu to all of our trains with complete breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees. Snacks, sandwiches, soft drinks, beer and cocktails are also available.
Checked baggage service is also available on some trains, too and from staffed stations (consult Amtrak or one of the timetables for information). On other trains, baggage can be stored overhead or on baggage racks near car ends.
