Amtrak service suspended after earthquake
Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor train service has been temporarily suspended this morning between Sacramento and San Jose while crews inspect the tracks for damage following the earthquake early this morning near American Canyon.
ACE special train service between Stockton and San Jose for this afternoon’s San Francisco 49ers football game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara has also been canceled because of safety concerns following the quake.
49ers spokesman Bob Lange issued a statement regarding train service for Sunday afternoon’s 49ers-Chargers preseason game:
“ACE would normally carry upwards of 500 passengers to our game. Capital Corridor carries approximately 750 fans. We remain in communication with these agencies.”
Caltrain officials said they expect to run service to the football game but said there are delays this morning because of track and bridge inspections.
BART had pre-planned delays because of track maintenance on its Pittsburg-Bay Point line but has not reported any other disruptions this morning as a result of the quake.
