Discounted rides on the Capitol Corridor line between the Sacramento area and the South Bay are being extended through June after initially being set to expire this week.

The 30 percent discount on all one-way and round trips, launched as part of Capitol Corridor’s 30th anniversary celebration, was previously planned to last through March, but the agency said its extension comes as gas prices have spiked recently.

The tickets must be purchased on Capitol Corridor’s website or the Amtrak mobile app with code V530 and cannot be applied to monthly, 10-ride or other multi-ride fares.

“Getting around anywhere in California these days is more expensive than ever, so we want to do our part to ease the burden,” Capital Corridor managing director Rob Padgette said in a statement.
