If you're not going to San Francisco at all, why stop there. Connect in Portland/Seattle/Salt Lake City etc.
Amtrak looks to cost less than the cab fares my team will have to take from Sacramento Airport to our hotel, seems reasonable enough to me.

And I got the flight to SF real cheap, which really limited my options, it was just over $100 cheaper to fly direct into SF than connect in Denver (the only other option I got) to get into Sacramento.

It shouldn't be a problem if your traveling during normal hours.
Yeah, I noticed that when I dug a bit more. Probably the way I'll do it.


Thanks again for the help.
