The San Mateo County Fair is coming to the San Mateo County Event Center this weekend and Caltrain is a great way get to one of summer’s most popular events.
Caltrain is a sponsor of the fair, which runs through Saturday, June 12, and opens at 11 a.m. Peninsula residents can get to the fair by taking Caltrain to the new Hillsdale Caltrain Station, which is a short distance along Delaware Street to the fairgrounds main entrance.
The Caltrain booth will be located near the South Delaware Street entrance. Staff will be on site to discuss trip planning options accessible by train, rail safety education and to talk fair-goers about some of the rail agency’s current projects, such as Caltrain Electrification. Human Resources will also be available to discuss job opportunities with the rail agency. Anyone who visits the booth may receive a squishy Caltrain toy train, branded face covering, or flashing safety light, while supplies last.
For schedule and fare information or for help planning your trip, call 1-800-660-4287 (TTY 650-508-6448) or visit www.caltrain.com.
About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad has provided the community with more than 150 years of continuous passenger service. 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.
