Get Through the Holidays With San Joaquins

November 23, 2021

Let’s be honest: the holidays aren’t always all they’re cracked up to be. So many expectations, so little time. San Joaquins sees your struggle—and we’ve got some tips to help you holiday your way. And even save money while you’re at it!


Skip the Traffic

Whether you’re headed home or traveling out of town for the holidays, there’s one thing you can count on: traffic. Skip the hassle of bumper-to-bumper traffic and let San Joaquins do the driving while you relax with comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, scenic views and dining cars.

Avoid the airport

Our hack for avoiding overcrowded airports and delayed flights: take the train! San Joaquins has routes to 135+ destinations all over California, including: Yosemite, San Francisco and Los Angeles! Plan your trip here.

save on tickets

Traveling with a group this holiday? San Joaquins has savings for you! With our Friends & Family Discount—buy one ticket and save 50% on up to five companion fares. Use discount code V302 at checkout. Additionally, students save 15% with our Student Discount!

shop with style

With imminent postal delays and material shortages on the rise, online shopping can be a bust. Make a trip out of checking off your holiday shopping list by taking San Joaquins directly to the shopping district—Union Square in San Francisco! Buy presents for everyone on your nice list while having a “treat-yo-self” moment.

go on an adventure

As much as we love visiting family, it’s nice to have an exit strategy. Instead of sticking around (after all the dishes are done, of course) explore California with a snow-filled trip to Yosemite! Sit back, enjoy the breathtaking view and have an unforgettable adventure in one of America’s most beautiful national parks.
