Meeting on the Future of Caltrain

12:31 AM PST on December 9, 2013

What thoughts do you have about what Caltrain be like should be a decade from now? Caltrain is working on a strategic plan including funding, and this is our chance to shape the vision.

How will Caltrain electrification be funded, and how will the organization fit into the Bay Area’s transit system?

How will Caltrain relate to cities, employers, neighborhoods and other organizations that depend on it?

What kind of service should there be with electric trains? More like BART - frequent, all-day service? A crisper commute service with fewer stops?

What will the experience be like on the train and at the station?

How will you make the connections at the start and end of a trip on Caltrain - walking, shuttle, buses, bikes, self-driving cars? How will you pay for the trip?

How will our region be doing toward greenhouse gas reduction goals, and what role will Caltrain play?

Join Friends of Caltrain on Monday, December 16 at San Carlos Library at 7pm (7 minutes from San Carlos Caltrain) and share your thoughts. Caltrain staff will be present to share the latest on funding and hear your ideas.
