In this issue: A heartfelt thank you to Caltrain Riders, what's the latest with construction, and a shout out to Salt Lake City!


Thank You to YOU, our riders, for your continued support while we work to make the future of Caltrain better and brighter. Weekend construction closures can be frustrating, but it means that change is coming, and we hope you'll agree that the future is worth it. We look forward to bringing our riders more trains more often, with better on-time performance and onboard comfort. No matter which improvements you're looking forward to, we thank you for supporting the CalMod program.

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.
