Equity, Connectivity, Recovery & Growth Policy 

Equity, Connectivity, Recovery & Growth Policy | Español | 漢語 | Tiếng Việt

Caltrain has developed a policy to advance equity within the system and neighboring communities. This policy will help address systemic inequality by taking steps to ensure the Caltrain system is accessible and useful to all. The policy also advances efforts to improve Caltrain connections to the regional transit network and provide direction on service priorities during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. This policy is a crucial starting point. There is more work that Caltrain will need to do as it navigates a rapidly changing transportation landscape.

The deadline to submit comments and feedback was August 21, 2020.

As Caltrain moves forward with electrification it is time to examine the big questions like "what’s next – what will the rail corridor look like in the future? How can Caltrain meet demand and provide the maximum value to its customers, communities and the region? How can the railroad financially support its ongoing operations, maintenance and growth?

We are developing the Caltrain Business Plan to answer these questions. The Business Plan is an in-depth technical and policy document that will set the direction for the future of the railroad. The Business Plan builds on the railroad’s existing commitments and projects and covers new ground to help us define how both the Caltrain service and corridor should grow and change for years to come.
