Weekend Baby Bullet starts on January 1

Despite fare increases and weekday service reductions, Caltrain has announced that it will begin running Baby Bullet trains on weekends on a pilot basis for three months. Weekend express service has been sought after by many train riders and Caltrain is looking for ways to generate more revenue similar to the success of the weekday Baby Bullet trains introduced several years ago.

As Caltrain supporters, we applaud Caltrain for listening to riders and introducing the weekend express service. As successful as current weekend local service is, we believe that weekend express service will make the trains even more competitive with automobiles, especially among those who don’t ride the trains during weekday commute hours.
