Caltrain electrification is moving forward; and there’s a new proposal on the table for dedicated Caltrain funding. Caltrain is working on a business plan that could shape the future of the service. Which will especially be needed given Google’s huge proposal to add 20,000 or more workers in Diridon Station in San Jose.
Meanwhile, a project to reduce congestion on 101 with managed lanes is in the planning process – but the project team seems savvier about designing high-occupancy lanes than about helping commuters have transit and carpool choices to use the lanes to avoid solo driving.
- In Palo Alto tonight, Wednesday June 28, and in Redwood City on July 19, come learn about a vision to ease the commute pain and ask a panel of experts how our region can overcome obstacles to achieve solutions along Caltrain/101.
- How can we upgrade Caltrain and the 101 corridor to improve commutes, reduce time and stress for the most people, while moving more commuters?
- How can more commuters break the habit of driving alone?
- What solutions would work best for commuters of all income levels?
- What options support climate change goals?
- Can the region maintain economic growth without a transportation breakdown?
