Caltrain Board Welcomes New JPB Member Cheryl Brinkman

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB) welcomed Cheryl Brinkman, Municipal Transportation Agency appointee, representing the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) at its July monthly meeting.

Brinkman is the chair of the SFMTA board of directors and a supporter for safer sustainable transportation. As the former board president for Livable City, and a transportation enthusiast, she manages to get around San Francisco in various ways and is a great advocate for alternate modes of transportation and street safety.

The board of directors is the governing body of Caltrain, the commuter rail service that operates in San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Caltrain is managed by the San Mateo County Transit District, in partnership with the City and County of San Francisco and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. The nine-member board of directors is composed of three members from each of the three partner agencies.

The Board of Directors meets the first Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Edward J. Bacciocco Auditorium located on the second floor at its administrative offices, 1250 San Carlos Ave. in San Carlos.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
