The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB), the entity that manages Caltrain, is seeking volunteers from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties to apply for its Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).  

The CAC currently has openings for six seats, two each for representatives from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Two of the seats available in San Francisco and Santa Clara are for alternate committee members. Committee members are asked to serve a three-year term.

The CAC is comprised 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.  

Residents interested in joining the advisory committee can find an application on the CAC web page here, or by calling 650.508.6347. Applications for the CAC are due by Friday, May 5, 2023. 

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 Citizens Advisory Committee | Caltrain
