Caltrain public meeting - 4/11 (Tuesday) at 6:30pm

Caltrain is having a short public meeting on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church on Hacienda at the end of 25th Ave (super convenient!).  This is about their plans for relocating the train station, facilitating 28th Ave and 31st Ave grade separations, and constructing the 25th Ave grade separations.  There is a tiny bit of info on the web here

This is the neighborhood’s big chance to ask questions, particularly about train station access and how we can bike and walk across the tracks (e.g., to the mall) both during construction and with the final new configuration. Materials mention Hillsdale Caltrain station closure for up to 5 months in 2019. Designers on this project have tended to focus on cars, so if we don’t speak up, it could be pretty inconvenient!

Caltrain/101 Corridor Vision
Traffic congestion on Highway 101 is miserable. Tens of thousands are stuck in traffic every day. Caltrain trains are also crowded with commuters at rush hour. What are the most effective ways to improve the commute and to help the most commuters, with less time and stress? Can congestion relief be provided quickly? Can the region keep up with economic growth without having transportation break down? What options are best for the climate? What’s best for commuters across a variety of income levels?

On Wednesday, March 1, a cast of experts from state, local, employer, and nonprofit perspectives (Spur, TransForm, CalTrans, Stanford, C/CAG) will share options to ease the commute pain and answer questions about how our region can overcome obstacles to achieve solutions.
