The Caltrain Bicycle Advisory Committee is not a policy board; it serves as the primary venue for the interests and perspectives of bicyclists to be integrated into the Caltrain planning process as an advisory committee to Caltrain staff.  The committee is a partnership composed of nine volunteer members and Caltrain staff. There are three representatives from each of the three counties served by Caltrain: San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara. One member from each county is a public agency staff member responsible for bike planning and/or policy development, one is a member of a bicycle advocacy organization, and one is a Caltrain bike passenger from the general public. 

The BAC meets one evening every other month in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station. All meetings are open to the public

Applications are available at or by calling 650.508.6391.
