2019 - A Year In Review

CalMod - Year in Review animation

This year we took some BIG steps forward in Caltrain Electrification! Everything we've accomplished this year will help move the Bay Area forward with cleaner and quicker rail service. Here are some of our most exciting highlights:
  • Stadler opened a brand new train manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City and 28 train cars are in different stages of assembly.
  • Every city along the 51-mile corridor was touched by either preparations for or installation of infrastructure that will power the electric trains.
  • We created new videos to highlight the project's job creation, promote safety awareness, and fun time lapses of construction activities.
  • Together we held 48 community meetings/presentations and shared 54,000 mailers and flyers.

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.
