ACE Rail to resume limited service Thursday
February 15, 2017
• One train westbound, one east
• Alternatives listed
• UPDATED @ 12:46 p.m. Thursday
The Altamont Corridor Express passenger train service between Stockton and San Jose resumes service Thursday.
The trains have been idled because of problems to the Union Pacific tracks in Northern California that were caused, ACE says, by bad weather.
ACE will run modified service on Thursday, February 16, Friday, February 17, and Monday, February 20. The trains that will be in operation are:
• Thursday: AM – ACE 03; PM – ACE 06
• Friday: AM – ACE 03; PM – ACE 06
• Monday (President’s Day, planned limited service): AM – ACE 03 and ACE 05; PM – ACE 04 and ACE 06
But previously announced plans to run two trains on Friday have been cut. Now just one train westbound in the morning and one eastbound in the evening are planned.
Capitol Corridor will honor validated ACE tickets between Fremont and San Jose during the duration of the outage.
ACE says it is negotiating with Union Pacific to run two trains on Monday, February 20 for the President’s Day holiday.
Weather related delays in repairs to Union Pacific tracks are still a factor.
There is no word on when UP tracks will be fixed to the point where ACE can resume full commuter service.
