Bay Area Traffic
Amtrak train ridership jumps 14 percent
Rising gas prices have prompted some Northern Californians to get out of their cars and onto public transportation.
On Thursday, the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority announced Amtrak train ridership jumped 14 percent in February compared to the same time last year.
They say this spike in ridership is similar to what happened in 2008 when gas soared above $4.
