Bicycle and Active Transportation Advisory Committee
Caltrain's Bicycle and Active Transportation Advisory Committee (BATAC) serves as the primary venue for the interests and perspectives of customers who use active transportation as their primary mode of access to the Caltrain system to be integrated into the Caltrain planning processes. Active transportation includes walking, biking, and using scooters, skateboards, and other closely-related modes of personal and share (including electric) micromobility. 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 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.
Due to the COVID-19 public stay-at-home order, the BATAC meetings will only be available via remote access. The public may participate remotely via each meeting’s unique Zoom weblink and audio number.
The BATAC 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:
