Caltrain Seeks New Representatives for Bicycle Advisory Committee

Caltrain is seeking new members for its Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC), which serves as the primary venue for the interests and perspectives of bicyclists to be integrated into the Caltrain planning processes.

The committee is comprised of nine volunteer members from San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. One member from each county represents a public agency staff member, a bicycle advocacy organization member and a Caltrain bike passenger from the general public who uses a bicycle or bike share. Currently, the committee has four openings; a general public member from San Francisco and San Mateo Counties, and representatives from bike organizations in San Francisco and Santa Clara Counties.

Applications are due Monday, November 30, and are available at www.caltrain.com/bac or by calling 650.740.6264.

The BAC meets every other month at 5:45 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.  All meetings are open to the public, and are currently being held digitally.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. 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.

San Mateo County Transit District, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos, California 94070, USA
