Spring Brings New Beginnings
The electrification program continues to move forward, and we experienced an exciting milestone in March with the arrival of the first state-of-the-art electric trains, delivered from Stadler’s rail manufacturing plant in Salt Lake City. I’ve had the pleasure of riding on the new trains when they were being tested in Colorado at 115mph, and I can’t wait for our riders to experience it firsthand in 2024. These trains will usher in a new era for the agency in the coming years as we transition to electrified service. 

The new high-performance trains will be cleaner, quieter, more comfortable, and more efficient – providing our customers the modern riding experience they deserve while bringing a new standard of excellence to the Caltrain corridor.
Additionally, with Spring (and Giants season) upon us, we are offering a 50% discount for all fares in April to thank our loyal passengers and welcome back those who may be returning to the system for the first time. In addition to the reduced fares, Caltrain resumed running its regular, record-high 104-train schedule on April 4th

More trainsets will arrive this year for system testing before entering into revenue service in 2024, when they will transform travel by providing faster, quieter, greener, and more frequent service to our riders. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities to see these spectacular new trains!
