    This opinion piece neglects to mention how we figure out the last mile problem for 60,000 more people. I’m a bit shocked that Caltrain has managed to get to 60k not just because of the line’s capacity, but because of the increasing difficulty in getting to/from the station for each marginal customer.

    The new Palo Alto bridge looks amazing.

    Does anyone know if the new fencing now prevent bikes on the closed section of highway 1? It was a really enjoyable climb with no cars when it was just closed off with cones and the barricade.

  • spencewine

    @thequin. The fenced off portion now has specific signage stating no
    bikes or pedestrians and signage saying trespassers will be prosecuted.
    Bike at your own risk.
