Caltrain Seeks Representatives for Bicycle & Active Transportation Advisory Committee

Caltrain Seeks Representatives for Bicycle & Active Transportation Advisory Committee

 

Caltrain is seeking two people who access Caltrain by bicycle or other active modes of transportation to apply for its Bicycle & Active Transportation Advisory Committee (BATAC). The BATAC serves as the primary venue to integrate bicycling, walking and other closely related modes into the Caltrain planning processes. The openings are for a member of the general public from Santa Clara County and a member of a bike/active transportation organization from San Mateo County.

The committee is comprised of nine volunteer members from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. One member from each county is a public agency staff member responsible for planning and/or policy development related to active transportation, one is a member of a bicycle advocacy organization, and one is a member from the general public who uses active transportation to access Caltrain. 

Applications are due Tuesday, November 30, and are available at www.caltrain.com/batac or by calling 650.508.6391.

The BAC meets every other month at 5:45 p.m. via Zoom.  All meetings are open to the public.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with commute service to Gilroy. 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.
