Caltrain Strategic Plan (2014)

What is the Caltrain Strategic Plan?
The Strategic Plan will establish a common vision for the agency and will frame key policy, service and investment decisions over the next 10 years.

Caltrain kicked off the Strategic Plan effort at the October 2013 Board meeting. Since that time, staff has worked with the board, the Caltrain Citizen’s Advisory Committee, the Bicycle Advisory Committee, the Local Policy Maker Group, other stakeholders and the public to develop and refine a draft strategic plan. Staff presented the key policy text from this draft to the board on August 7, 2014. A complete draft of the plan is now available for download and review. The draft contains explanatory text and a discussion of implementation and monitoring next steps. Policy language in the draft plan is identical to what was presented to the Board on August 7th and previously posted on this site.
