Bicycle Advisory Committee
Caltrain's Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) serves as the primary venue for the interests and perspectives of bicyclists to be integrated into the Caltrain planning processes. This group brings new ideas for discussion and helps Caltrain guide its future investments.
The committee is a partnership composed of nine volunteer members and Caltrain staff. There are three representatives from each of the three counties served by Caltrain: San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara. One member from each county is a public agency staff member responsible for bike planning and/or policy development, one is a member of a bicycle advocacy organization, and one is a Caltrain bike passenger from the general public.
The BAC meets every other month at 6:45 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station. All meetings are open to the public.
The current roster is as follows:
Representing City and County of San Francisco:
Dan Provence, representing the public agency
Michael Sonn, representing a bike organization
Garrett Turner, representing the general public
Representing San Mateo County:
Darcy Forsell, representing the public agency
Steve Vanderlip, representing a bike organization
Samir Dhebar, representing the general public
Representing Santa Clara County:
John Brazil, representing the public agency
Edward Saum, representing a bike organization
Wesley Brinsfield, representing the general public
