  • Are you guys going to be writing a full story about the potential Caltrain cuts? I know so many who have given up cars to ride Caltrain (I don’t own a car period because of Caltrain), and this is really going to hurt us.

  • Sean

    I would also love to have a story about the potential Caltrain cuts. Awareness really needs to build for Caltrain’s sake. We need a dedicated funding source.

  • Yeah, this is awful news. The Caltrain spokesperson went so far as to call into question Caltrain’s continued existence.

  • Said it before, I’ll say it again: the state and the MTC will not get me into a car, no matter how hard they try. That being said, if I lose caltrain it’s time to look for a new job.

    And the caltrain board sounds like the MTA. Oh no, don’t give yourself a ballot measure that could raise funds, it’s a recession. Has this whole country gone mad?
