Anyone have experience riding the Capitol Corridor from Santa Clara/Great America to Oakland Coliseum?

I'm thinking of catching the 6:52am train from Santa Clara/Great America, and arriving at Oakland Coliseum at 7:34am, then taking BART to Embarcadero station. If everything runs according to schedule, I imagine it's possible to get into SF at approximately 8:05am.

Is this a feasible commute? How reliable is the Capitol Corridor between Santa Clara/Great America and Oakland Coliseum?

The Capitol Corridor has a bus service to San Francisco paired with it. Why not just use that? It stops right at 101 The Embarcadero. $190 for a monthly pass good for both services.

Did Caltrain break or something? I know it doesn't go to the Embarcadero, but I think you could manage it from 4th/King.

Well, I live about literally about 5 minutes from the Amtrak station at Santa Clara, and the travel time seems pretty reasonable to Oakland Coliseum.

I'm just wondering how reliable the Amtrak is for this stretch.

The Capitol Corridor is at least as reliable as Caltrain, but another option you might consider would be to take the light rail from the stop a block east of there to the Mountain View Caltrain station. I believe that takes about 20 minutes. Caltrain's monthly pass gets you free rides on VTA, though Caltrain itself will only take you out to 4th & King until the new Transbay Terminal is finished.
