About Government Affair| Legislative Program | Contact

Caltrain provides rail service between San Francisco and Gilroy.  Our ability to provide safe and efficient transportation service is influenced by federal, state and local legislation, policy, and regulation.

Caltrain’s Government and Community Affairs team is responsible for developing and coordinating the organization’s legislative program at the federal, state, regional and local levels.  The Government Affairs team monitors and analyzes the impact of legislative, policy, and regulatory issues, and develops a coordinated strategy and response. The team works closely with the offices of our 16 State delegation and eight federal delegation members, and maintains an active presence in Washington D.C. and Sacramento. The team leads the Agency’s engagement with local elected officials and city staff in the 19 cities along the Caltrain corridor.

The Government and Community Affairs team also coordinates public outreach and community affairs for Caltrain’s capital projects. The team serves as the liaison to key local stakeholders and community-based organizations in the communities we serve.
