Location! Location! Location!

Does your next shoot require a transportation shot?

Consider the San Mateo County Transit District's numerous transit centers, SamTrans buses, Caltrain trains and stations. We are an award-winning, film friendly organization with locations that range from historic to modern.

So whatever your shoot requires, we'll do our best to work with you to make sure it becomes a reality and within budget.

Please complete the following Caltrain film request form and contact information. The requester must also provide a Certificate of Insurance and meet the Caltrain's minimum insurance requirements in order to be issued a film permit. Film permits generally take 2 weeks to process. See insurance requirements here.
