    Caltrain (reporting mark JPBX) is a California commuter rail line on the San Francisco Peninsula and in the Santa Clara Valley (Silicon Valley).The northern terminus of the line is in San Francisco at 4th and King Streets; its southern terminus is in San Jose at Diridon Station with rush hour service running as far as leave San Francisco and San Jose hourly during weekdays, and Track gauge: 4 ft 8 ¹⁄₂ in (1, mm) standard gauge. History. In , after plans to extend Caltrain to downtown San Francisco were put on hold, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (PCJPB) started the Rapid Rail Study, which was published as a draft in October The Rapid Rail Study prioritized planned capital improvements to implement the Caltrain Year Strategic Plan, which sought to improve service and increase.

      The VTA study will explore the potential for high-capacity transit on corridors that have been planned in the past, and that aren’t planned yet, looking at a variety of modes including bus rapid transit, light rail, rapid transit, and heavy rail (diesel multiple unit or electric multiple unit). Caltrain Rapid Rail Program Work Plan – Welcome to the BayRail . Caltrain Rapid Rail Program Work Plan FINAL DRAFT Novem Prepared by: Caltrain Engineering Department Work Breakdown Structure: System Level»More detailed/5(K).

    The comprehensive "Caltrain Rapid Rail Study" assigns lower priority to expansions of the system, such as rail across the Dumbarton Bridge, than to rehabilitation, enhancement and electrification of the main line. The JPB meets March 4 to act on the Rapid Rail Study and set priorities that have been subject to heated debate since last October.   Modernizing San Fransisco-area Caltrain commuter service is expected to create the equivalent of almost 9, jobs, increase property values and generate overall economic benefits of up to $ billion, according to a new study the Bay Area Council Economic Institute released ahead of a decision on high-speed rail that could provide critical funding for the project.

offers books specializing in urban rapid transit; commuter rail, light rail & subway. We have published our first book in our five part series on Bay Area urban rail. Our first book is a color album covering all 42 BART stations -San Francisco's regional rapid transit system - it is available below.

Caltrain Fare Study Caltrain Fare Study Overview. InCaltrain commenced a comprehensive Fare Study to provide updated data and analysis to inform and support the development of fare policy at Caltrain.

The agency last completed a comprehensive Fare Study inand much has changed since then for Caltrain and the region. Caltrain's trajectory of modernization, described extensively in its business planning effort, takes it out of the old-fashioned category of "commuter rail" and into the category of "rapid transit," right here in the Bay Area.

You could then describe it as Bay Area Rapid. Safety Training Roadway Worker Protection (RWP) Roadway Worker Protection (RWP) training is required by federal regulation (49 CFR ).Each railroad must provide this training to any individuals performing work on behalf of the railroad and are working near or with moving equipment on the tracks or off the tracks.

Inwith local, regional and state agreement on the blended system/service concept, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the California High Speed Rail Authority, Caltrain and six other San Francisco Bay Area funding partners established a regional funding memorandum of understanding (MOU) to support the blended system.

Caltrain Fare Study Draft Research and Peer Comparison October 2 Introduction This Research and Peer Review serves to provide a broader context for fare policy at Caltrain.

It presents key research findings from primary and secondary sources on fare structures and. Core Capacity Transit Study Friday, September 1, The study was a joint effort of five transit operators: BART, Muni, AC Transit, Caltrain, and the Water Emergency Transportation Authority, in coordination with the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC).

The system selected by Caltrain for the commuter rail line electrification is an autotransformer- fed system. The system comprises three major parts: traction power supply system including Author: Tristan Kneschke.

Caltrain commissioned the report, called the Rapid Rail Study, after its longtime dream of a downtown station was shelved about a year ago because of the high projected cost and opposition from.

Transit Library Since the creation of BayRail Alliance (was known as Peninsula Rail ) inthe organization has collected hundreds of pages of reports on Caltrain and mass transit planning on the Peninsula and the South Bay. CHAPTER 2: PROJECT DESCRIPTION Caltrain Electrification Program EA/EIR Environmental Impact Report for the Caltrain Downtown San Francisco Extension; and the October Caltrain Rapid Rail Study.

ALTERNATIVES A range of different propulsion options was considered to meet the project purpose and need. InPCJPB published an implementation plan for the Rapid Rail Study which called for a $ million investment from the three counties served by Caltrain.

California State Senator Jackie Speier and Caltrain leadership are credited with the idea to provide an express service for Caltrain during a brainstorming session. Electrification of Caltrain was included in the High Speed Rail business plan as part of early investment package and would be used by High Speed trains under the blended approach.

After the approval of the High Speed Rail plan by the state legislature in the summer ofelectrification officially became “fully funded” with funding. The Downtown Rail Extension (DTX) is a planned second phase of the San Francisco Transbay Transit Center (TTC).

When complete, it will extend the Caltrain Peninsula Corridor commuter rail line from its current northern terminus at 4th and King via a mi ( km) tunnel. The new terminus will be close to the Financial District and will provide intermodal connections to BART, Muni, Transbay System: Caltrain, CHSR.Rapid Transit (BART), Alameda-Contra Costa Transit (AC Transit), the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA), and Caltrain Funding and planning partner: San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) Figure 1 Bay Area Transit Core Capacity Study Area 80 80 1 BART Caltrain MUNI AC Transit Ferry SAN FRANCISCO METRO.The Dumbarton Rail Corridor is a proposed transbay passenger rail line which would reuse the right-of-way that was initially constructed from – as the Dumbarton Cut-off.

The Dumbarton Cut-off includes the first structure to span San Francisco Bay, the Dumbarton Rail Bridge, although the vintage Cut-off bridges would likely be replaced prior to activating new passenger gauge: 4 ft 8 ¹⁄₂ in (1, mm), (standard gauge).
