Bay Area Bountiful: Caltrain
Passengers have ridden the train from San Jose to San Francisco since before the turn of the 20th Century. Now, commuters are looking forward to traveling with reduced greenhouse gas emissions when Caltrain completes its electrification of the line, making it a high tech model for the rest of the country. Join local governments, elected officials, community members and avid railfans for this peek at the sparkling new trains. Featuring commentary by longtime transportation advocate Rod Diridon, Sr.
