STEPS YOU CAN TAKE NOW TO SAVE CALTRAIN

This page always has the latest steps to save Caltrain. Bookmark this page and come back for updates.

It doesn’t make any sense for the backbone of transit service on the Peninsula to not have committed funding. Sign up here to stay informed and take action about next steps to get stable funding for Caltrain

As of July 6, 2012, Caltrain modernization is funded as part of the state legislature’s passage of high speed rail appropriations. This means that those of us on the Caltrain corridor will most likely see a better train schedule in the foreseeable future. Caltrain will be able to serve more stations with the same or better trip times, at lower cost, not to mention less pollution.

There will be a lot to do to make sure the plans for Caltrain modernization meet the needs of riders and local areas. Your feedback will be needed as Caltrain does the planning over the next year with community input.  Sign up here to adopt your station and help shape how a modernized Caltrain will work for decades to come.

If Caltrain had wifi it would be an even better alternative compared to driving. Tell Caltrain to please add wifi on the trains.

Tell your friends – share this web page with friends and colleages by email, Facebook, and Twitter.

Keep up to date by reading fast-breaking news on the Green Caltrain blog.

Community mobilization is making a difference. If there is continued vocal effort, the three counties and MTC can come up with plans for longterm stable funding and successful Caltrain modernization.
