The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (PCJPB) will hold a public hearing to receive public comment on the proposed closure of the Atherton Caltrain Station. The closure will permanently discontinue service for Atherton station and remove the station from future timetables. On January 15, 2020 the Town of Atherton tentatively endorsed the closure of Atherton Station subject to an Agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two parties.
Today, the Atherton Caltrain station currently receives limited weekend-only service every 90 minutes with an average of 114 passengers per weekend day. The “center boarding” configuration of the station limits operations as trains traveling in the other direction must wait or “hold out” for safety purposes while the train at the station is boarding.
Caltrain will hold a virtual meeting to present the proposals and receive comments from the public.
The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board of Directors will hold a virtual public hearing to discuss the proposed station closure. The Board invites public comment on the potential closure of Atherton station at the hearing.
The public may participate via a Zoom web link and/or by phone.
