This spring, Bay Area leaders formalized a major effort to identify the funds to electrify Caltrain while the High-Speed Rail Authority chose to allocate its initial funding toward an operating segment of high-speed rail towards Southern California. What does electrification mean for Caltrain’s future and how will it help keep the future of high-speed rail service in the Bay Area on track? Join us for an update and a critical discussion about what’s next for these regionally-significant rail projects. With Gillian Gillett, transportation policy advisor to Mayor Lee, Seamus Murphy of Caltrain and Randy Rentschler of MTC.
