Caltrain & SamTrans to Operate Modified Schedule for MLK Jr. Day Holiday


Caltrain and SamTrans will continue to provide service on Monday, January 20, for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

Caltrain will operate a modified schedule, which includes one train to/from Gilroy and two baby bullet trains in both directions between San Jose Diridon and San Francisco. The San Jose Diridon-Tamien shuttle will continue to operate on a modified schedule to accommodate alternative train service.

SamTrans will operate a regular, non-school day schedule for the holiday. Bus routes that primarily service local schools will not be operating that Monday.

The administrative offices of the San Mateo County Transit District, which manages SamTrans and Caltrain, will be closed for the holiday.

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. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 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.
