Caltrain to reduce peak-hour service for three weeks to work on electrification

in Community/Infrastructure

Caltrain will reduce peak-hour service and suspend Baby Bullet service for a three-week period from March 14 through April 1 to accomodate Caltrain electrification work. The current 104 weekday trains will be reduced to 88 during this period.

“Trains are single-tracking through Broadway, Burlingame, San Mateo, Hayward Park, and Hillsdale stations for three weeks affecting passenger boarding,” the transit agency said. “Riders using those stations should be sure to pay attention to signage and announcements to make sure they are waiting at the correct platform at the station.”

The electrification work will take place weekdays from 5:30 a.m.-9 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m.-7 p.m. Service to weekday middays, evenings and weekend service will remain unchanged.

On Monday, April 4, Caltrain will revert back to the regular weekday schedule.

Caltrain will also have a 50 percent off fare promotion during month of April.
