The Caltrain Electrification Project is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program that will electrify the Caltrain Corridor from San Francisco’s 4th and King Station to approximately the Tamien Station in San Jose and convert diesel-hauled to Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains. The Electrification Project will improve Caltrain system performance, enable more frequent and/or faster train service, and reduce long-term environmental impact by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Electrification Project is scheduled to be operational by 2021.
