Construction is advancing along the Caltrain corridor! To accommodate the brand new electric trains, construction crews will begin work in the four San Francisco tunnels starting in October.  Crews will create additional clearance in the tunnel sides to accommodate the new trains and will install anchor bolts in the tunnel ceilings to facilitate the installation of the overhead contact system that will power the new electric trains.  For more information visit CalMod.org/SFtunnels.


In order to facilitate work in the tunnels, trains will not operate on weekends between San Francisco and Bayshore Stations from October 6, 2018 to late Spring 2019.  Caltrain service will stop at Bayshore Station and a bus bridge will transport passengers to the 22nd and 4th & King Stations.  Weekday service will not be impacted.  For more service information, please visit www.Caltrain.com/SFweekendClosure.

 

Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project
 

Caltrain Electrification is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization program which will electrify the Caltrain Corridor from San Francisco's 4th and King Caltrain Station to approximately the Tamien Caltrain Station.

 

The primary purpose of Caltrain Electrification is to improve Caltrain system performance, reduce long-term environmental impact by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  An electrified Caltrain system would better address Peninsula commuters' vision of increased service and improved travel times in an environmentally friendly and reliable way.  This also is expected to help accommodate increase system ridership through improved system operations.
