Caltrain Seeks Volunteer for Citizens Advisory Committee


The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, the entity that manages Caltrain, is seeking a volunteer from San Mateo County to apply for its Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).

The CAC is composed of nine community members who serve in an advisory capacity to the Caltrain board of directors, providing input on the needs of current and potential rail customers. Applicants for the CAC should represent the demographics of Caltrain’s ridership.

The CAC is accepting applications to fill one seat to represent San Mateo County. This appointment is for a partial term that expires June 30, 2019.

Residents interested in joining the advisory committee can find an application on the CAC website here, or by calling 650.508.6347. Applications for the CAC are due by Thursday, October 4, 2018.

The CAC meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:40 p.m. at the Caltrain headquarters at 1250 San Carlos Avenue, about one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station. All meetings are open to the public. For more information, visit


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. 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 corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
