Amtrak
Sacramento's Amtrak train station is located immediately adjacent to Old Sacramento. The walking distance between the Sacramento train station and Old Sacramento is about two city blocks. As you exit from your train or bus, look for the large, green Interstate Highway bridge overhead (to the west of the train station). Walk towards the bridge, and look for the "Old Sacramento" banners. A striped walkway leads directly from the Amtrak passenger platforms, west under the highway bridge, through a parking lot, to historic Old Sacramento.
