  • Re: Caltrain. Instead of cutting service, they should be improving it and attracting more ridership. Currently weekend service is slow, not taking advantage of the same attraction of weekday bullet service – in fact adding additional stops at Atherton and Broadway.

    Tell Caltrain to get creative and increase ridership by going to weekend bullet service – which would also save Caltrain operating money.
