Caltrain Seeks Community Volunteers for Advisory Committee
The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board is seeking applicants for its Citizens Advisory Committee to represent San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The CAC is comprised of nine volunteer members, who serve in an advisory capacity to the board of directors, providing input on the needs of current and potential rail customers.
Applicants should reflect the demographics of the riders. Applications are due by Monday, April 30. The CAC meets the third Wednesday of each month at 5:40 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station. All meetings are open to the public.
The JPB is a tri-county board, comprised of representatives from the City and County San Francisco, San Mateo County Transit District and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority.
Caltrain operates commuter rail service between San Francisco and San Jose, with commute-hour service to Gilroy. Last year, Caltrain carried nearly 12 million riders, and currently it carries an average weekday ridership of nearly 40,000.
