Caltrain Seeks Representatives for Bicycle & Active Transportation Advisory Committee

Caltrain is seeking two Caltrain riders to apply for its Bicycle & Active Transportation Advisory Committee (BATAC), which serves as the primary venue to integrate the interests and perspectives of customers who use active transportation--bicycling, walking and other closely related modes--as their primary mode of access to the Caltrain system into the planning processes. The openings are for a member of the public from Santa Clara County and a representative of a bicycle advocacy group from San Mateo County. 

The committee is comprised of nine volunteer members from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. One member from each county is a public agency staff member responsible for planning and/or policy development related to active transportation, one is a member of a bicycle advocacy organization, and one is a member from the general public who uses active transportation to access Caltrain.  

Applications are due by Thursday, November 30, and are available at or by calling 650.508.6391.  

The BATAC meets every other month at 5:45 p.m. via Zoom. All meetings are open to the public.
