Caltrain Meeting Wednesday on Adding New Trains, Adjusting Service

A meeting Wednesday evening in San Carlos seeks public input about potentially adding six new trains and adjusting service times for others.

Caltrain will hold a public meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m. to provide information and seek comment on a proposed service increase and adjustment that would go into effect in the fall of 2012. 

The proposed service changes include:


  • Restoring trains 236, 237, 256 and 257 to the Caltrain weekday schedule
  • Adding two trains to the evening peak commute period
  • Adding stops at Sunnyvale and Palo Alto, if feasible; adjusting station stop times as needed by up to five minutes; and modifying stop times for trains on either side of the adjusted trains.


Tonight's meeting is open to the public. It will be held at 6 p.m. at the Caltrain administrative offices, located at 1250 San Carlos Ave., in the second-floor auditorium, in San Carlos.
