150 Years of the Peninsula Commute Service

Caltrain is very pleased to be celebrating 150 years of the Peninsula Commute Service in 2014. This is a major milestone for Caltrain, especially as we look forward to Caltrain Modernization in the coming years. We are excited to celebrate the history of this incredible piece of American history that is still serving Bay Area residents today.


Caltrain invites customers and the public to join us on
Wednesday, April 23, from

4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the San Francisco and San Jose stations for Customer Appreciation Day.

To celebrate the next generation of the railroad, Caltrain and Transit America Services Inc. staff will host customer appreciation events at San Francisco and San Jose. Staff will give out special anniversary totes to commemorate the event (while supplies last). Some totes will contain a Caltrain memento. Be our 150th visitor at our table and receive a tote chock-full of goodies.

At the San Francisco station, we’ve partnered with Tazza D’Amore and Subway. At San Jose, we’ve partnered with McCarthy’s Newsstand.
