Caltrain Seeks Volunteers for Bicycle Advisory Committee

Caltrain is seeking volunteer representatives for the Bicycle Advisory Committee. Applicants who wish to apply must be part of a San Francisco public agency; part of a San Mateo County public agency; a member of a San Mateo County bicycle advocacy organization; or a member of the Santa Clara County general public. 

The nine-member committee is not a policy board but serves as the primary venue to express the interests and perspectives of Caltrain bicyclists.  

The BAC meets one evening every other month in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.  All meetings are open to the public.

Applications are due Monday, Dec. 9. Individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Members will be selected by the Staff Coordinating Council of the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board.  The council is made up of representatives of the three partner agencies.  

Interested persons can download an application by clicking here or call 650.508.6223.

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 has enjoyed three years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 50,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad will celebrate 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 corridor by 2019, reducing diesel emissions by 90 percent and adding more service to more stations.
