    I read Caltrain’s Agenda for the JPB meeting. In May, Caltrain carried 57,000+ passengers per weekday, a number I would have considered unfathomable when I started riding in 1998 (~23,000 per day). This despite the private shuttles carrying thousands of potential passengers on the same general routing. The traffic on US-101 is horrible and probably drives the ridership some, but the traffic was horrible in 2000 and the ridership was less than half the current number.

    What’s more unfathomable is that, even though ridership has nearly doubled, the Caltrain experience remains essentially completely unchanged since the introduction of the bullets. Service is still not frequent enough, ammenities poor (no wi-fi, nasty stinky bathrooms, janky trains, stations like 22nd St which is one of the most used but still doesn’t have basic digital signs or sufficient stairways, etc.).
