Caltrain, SamTrans to Run on Christmas

Caltrain, SamTrans to Run on Christmas


As Christmas approaches, Caltrain and SamTrans stand ready to get riders where they need to go.

On Monday, December 25, both agencies will operate on a standard Holiday schedule, which is the same as a Sunday schedule. Sunday, December 24, will also run on the standard Sunday schedule for both agencies. All non-school buses and 24 trains will be operating over the course of each day. Caltrain will also offer the standard shuttle service to and from the San Jose Diridon Station and Tamien station on both days.

The administrative offices of the San Mateo County Transit District, which manages Caltrain and SamTrans, will be closed on Christmas Day.


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 enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 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 system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
