Caltrain Implements Service Changes to Maintain Regional Connections and Improve Service

Starting Monday, March 22, Caltrain will adjust its weekday and weekend timetables to support regional transit connections, part of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) Blue Ribbon Task Force efforts. The task force was formed in May 2020 to help guide the future of the Bay Area’s public transportation network as the region adjusted to new conditions created by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Caltrain’s service adjustments include the following:

  • Maintaining BART connections at the Millbrae Transit Center to coincide with BART’s upcoming March 22 service changes
  • Increasing weekday service from 68 to 70 trains
  • Improving weekday morning & evening service:
  • Adjusting weekday train departure times to improve schedule reliability
  • Weekend service to/from Tamien station will be modified to meet ridership demand

As public health conditions continue to improve and ridership slowly increases, Caltrain will continue to make service adjustments to meet changing needs.

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.
