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.
