Construction to make Caltrain a modern, electric commuter rail system continues!

Crews also continued tree work in Menlo Park and San Jose as well as the construction of the Traction Power Substation in San Jose .

What Is CalMod?
The Caltrain Modernization Program (CalMod) includes electrification and other projects that will upgrade the performance, efficiency, capacity, safety and reliability of Caltrain's service. The current electrification project will electrify the corridor from San Francisco to San Jose and replace 75 percent of Caltrain's diesel service with high-performance electric trains, reducing air pollution and providing better service to more riders.
