Caltrain Service Free to Sworn Law Enforcement Representatives

 

The memorial service for the two fallen Santa Cruz police officers will be held Thursday, March 7 at noon at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.  The pavilion is located across the street from Caltrain’s San Jose Diridon Station. 

 

Caltrain provides complimentary service to all law enforcement representatives  riding anywhere along our system, with the proper identification. 

 

More than 20,000 attendees are expected to converge on the HP Pavilion to pay tribute to the Santa Cruz police officers who were killed in the line of duty last week.

 

“Our deepest sympathies are with the friends, family and extended law enforcement community as they come to terms with this senseless loss,” said Mark Simon, Caltrain’s executive officer for Public Affairs.

Caltrain’s San Jose Diridon Station is located at 95 Cahill Street, at the corner of Cahill and Santa Clara streets.  It is about a 5 minute walk to the HP Pavilion.

About Caltrain: Caltrain is owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, a partnership of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, the San Mateo County Transit District and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. The commuter railroad provides service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain has enjoyed 28 consecutive months of 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.
