Caltrain Board Elects Officers
Tom Nolan, chair of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors, was elected as vice chair. Nolan was the founding chair of the Joint Powers Board and was an instrumental figure in the creation of the JPB and the acquisition of Caltrain in 1991.
In other business, the board reviewed the key performance statistics for the month of November. Average weekday ridership was 47,326, which is an increase of 5,061 or 12 percent higher than the previous year. On-time performance also improved, from 83 percent in October to 91 percent in November.
The increase in ridership brought a corresponding increase in farebox revenue, of $3,969,762 or 15.6 percent more than budgeted. Expenses also were down 3.5 percent for the month.
The board meets the first Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. at 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos, two blocks from the train station. For more information about the board or for other Caltrain information, visit www.caltrain.com.
