Caltrain Modernization is underway, and the next opportunity to shape the new electrified trains is coming up.
After federal funding was finally secured, the Caltrain Electrification Project broke ground just two weeks ago. With infrastructure underway to connect communities from San Francisco to San Jose and everywhere else in between, we now turn our attention to the new electrified trains that will bring faster and more reliable service to everyday passengers.
Caltrain staff will be holding outreach at the 4th & King Station with sample displays of onboard bike storage. They are proposing two options and are looking for public input to help determine the preferred design.
With the increased service, both options will provide more bike space given the number of trains per hour. This is your chance to ask questions and test the different designs yourself to see how they work for you.
We encourage you to let Caltrain staff know which design you prefer and also share your experience of bringing your bike onboard. If you have recommendations around getting on and off with your bike, this is a great opportunity to give feedback as Caltrain continues designing their new trains.
