Electrification Schedule Update
While much progress has been made, electrified service has been delayed until 2024 due to complications in the installation of signal systems, unforeseen conditions under Caltrain’s tracks, and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The project is working to overcome these challenges, with 75% of the foundations complete, 60% of the poles installed, and all ten power substations underway. The first electric trainset is undergoing testing in Pueblo, Colo. and 55 electric train cars are now being assembled at the Salt Lake City manufacturing facility--bringing this transformational project closer to providing a more environmentally-friendly, fast, and reliable service to our communities.

Mobile Fare Payment
There’s a new, easy way riders can pay for fares through their phone or Apple Watch! Clipper® can now be added to Apple Pay or Google Pay mobile wallets. Once set up, simply hold a phone or Apple Watch near the Clipper® reader when boarding or alighting the train. This simple, contactless option makes riding the train even easier. Learn more here.
Caltrain Extends Fare Discounts for Clipper® Users
Passengers who use a Caltrain Monthly Pass, only available on Clipper®, will continue to receive a 20% discount through June 30, 2023. In addition, fare increases originally approved in 2019 have been postponed as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Caltrain is providing this discount to encourage people returning to work to take advantage of transit, while also providing some financial relief for those that have been riding regularly throughout COVID-19. For a list of fare changes, click here.

Caltrain is implementing a bold service vision for the future with a series of infrastructure and planning projects to modernize the system. Central among these projects is Electrification, which lays the foundation for a faster, greener, cleaner, and more reliable system for everyone.
