Locals commuting to Sacramento by train will soon have the option of an earlier arrival time. The new Amtrak San Joaquin morning express train service to Sacramento is set to formally launch on May 7.
“This new service is a rescheduling of our current service,” said David Lipari, marketing director for the San Joaquin Joint Powers Authority. “So right now, we have two roundtrips to and from Sacramento. Really what we’re doing is we’re rescheduling those two roundtrips to make it a little bit more convenient for both business travelers and same-day leisure travelers to get up to Sacramento”
