Caltrain 2040 Vision
Caltrain has an exciting vision for the future. Electric service, which will start in 2022, will set the stage for more frequent service - potentially trains up to every 5 minutes at top stations - longer trains carrying more people to relieve crowding, and greater integration with other transit services for smoother, more convenient trips. 

These transformative improvements will depend on decisions made in a visionary business plan that the Caltrain board will decide on this year.  Come learn about the Caltrain business plan plan from the transportation and policy experts at the forefront of the effort, hear how Caltrain will accomplish its goals over the coming decades, and learn how you can add your voice and help this happen.
