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 5:45 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.  All meetings are open to the public.

The current membership roster is as follows:

Representing San Francisco County:
Dan Provence, representing a public agency
Catherine Young, representing a bike organization
Garrett Turner, representing the general public

Representing San Mateo County:
Jesse Quirion, representing a public agency
Steve Vanderlip, representing a bike organization
