Water Tightness Test Tent
Thanks to the hardworking Stadler manufacturing crews, electric train production is still underway! At the Salt Lake City facility, production was moved to a split shift arrangement during spring to facilitate social distancing. To conduct the water tightness test, Stadler crews built a special tent with an array of piping and high pressure nozzles for spraying vast amounts of recycled water onto each vehicle to assure it's watertight.  Click the button below to see more photos of the new electric trains being built.

Construction update

Construction to make Caltrain a modern, electric commuter rail system continues! This month, crews installed foundations, poles, and wire from South San Francisco to San Jose. Work was also performed on eight traction power facilities in San Francisco, South San Francisco, San Mateo, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and San Jose.

As the Bay Area shelter-in-place restrictions begin to ease and travel throughout the region grows, Caltrain is now offering faster, user-friendly travel options. On June 15, we increased service to 70 trains per weekday and introduced a new skip-stop "Limited" service to reduce travel times and increase passenger flow for high-traffic stations to avoid crowding.

The health and safety of our passengers and staff are the utmost priority, and our tireless cleaning crews are sanitizing the fleet and stations using hospital-grade disinfectant products. Spray foggers are used on the trains during the midday and overnight, and station touchpoints are wiped down multiple times a day. All trains are six-car sets to maximize physical distancing onboard, and passengers are required to wear face coverings both onboard and at stations.

In light of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the Bay Area, Caltrain is monitoring the situation and following local public health agencies and CDC guidance regarding public meetings. To view the upcoming meeting schedule, visit Caltrain.com/Meetings.

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.
