Caltrain seeks representatives for Bicycle Advisory Committee

 

Caltrain is seeking applicants for its Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC), which serves as the primary venue for the interests and perspectives of bicyclists to be integrated into the Caltrain planning processes.

The committee is comprised of nine volunteer members from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.  One member from each county represents a public agency staff member, a bicycle advocacy organization member and a Caltrain bike passenger from the general public. 

The current openings accepting applications include:

  • San Francisco County public agency
  • San Mateo County public agency
  • San Mateo County bike organization
  • Santa Clara County general public

Applications are due Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, and are available at www.caltrain.com/bac or by calling 650.508.6391.

The BAC meets every other month at 5:45 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.  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 limited 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 system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
