First Electric Train Travels

Caltrain’s state-of-the-art electric trains will transform travel between San Francisco and San Jose, providing faster, quieter, greener and more frequent service to our riders. The first trainset has now arrived at the Caltrain Corridor! Assembled in Salt Lake City, Utah, the train passed by a number of exciting landmarks and stunning regional scenery as it made its way home. Next, the electric train and new electrification infrastructure will undergo rigorous system testing.

Stay tuned for more progress!
