Caltrain electrification is moving forward; and thereâ€™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. Â Â Which will especially be needed given Googleâ€™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?
