About the Project:
A key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program is the electrification of the Caltrain Corridor from San Francisco’s 4th Street and King Street Station to the Tamien Station in San Jose. The project will replace the diesel-hauled trains with Electric Multiple Unit trains. This will improve Caltrain system performance, enable more frequent and/or faster train service, and reduce long- term environmental impacts by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Caltrain electrification is scheduled to be operational by 2022.
