STOCKTON, Calif. — Amtrak’s San Joaquins have introduced new schedules to better accommodate weekend travelers and shorten connections to bus service.
The changes, which took effect on Monday, Dec. 17, cover three trains:
— Train No. 701 now departs Fresno, Calif., at 4:45 a.m., arriving at Sacramento at 7:59 a.m., shortening its travel time by 10 minutes.
— Train No. 718, which previously ran from Oakland to Fresno, is extended to Bakersfield on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays.
— Train No. 1701, which operates on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, will originate in Bakersfield rather than Fresno.
