Riders Benefits

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE, CALTRAIN RIDERS.

The Caltrain electrification project has been making great progress and you’ve probably noticed some changes in the last several months. We are grateful for the support we get from our riders every day and are working hard to deliver the best in improvements through the CalMod program. The electrified system will be a whole new experience, including more comfort and convenience – and we can’t wait to share it with you.

In the mean time, we want to hear from YOU, our riders. We’ll be at stations across the corridor inviting riders to share their thoughts on Caltrain electrification through brief interviews. Don’t miss your moment in the spotlight! Selected rider photos and videos collected during these events will be featured on CalMod.org and Caltrain social media #CaltrainRiders. Can’t make it to an event? Submit them via video below!

Want to share your excitement?

Upload a short video (60 seconds or less) of yourself and tell us what excites you most about the CalMod improvements.
We’ll be selecting videos to feature here and via social media.
