Caltrain Bicycle Master Plan public meeting

First meeting Thursday, June 12 in Santa Rosa San Carlos

Nearly 2,400 customers bring their bikes on board Caltrain each weekday. Caltrain runs out of space these days as demand exceeds the space on board the trains.

In an effort to address this issue, Caltrain is developing a Bicycle Master Plan that focuses on ways to improve bike parking at its 10 most-popular stations. Over the last year, staff has conducted extensive surveys of existing bike parking facilities and solicited input from bicycle advisory groups and Caltrain bike riders.

Caltrain will hold three meetings to hear comments about its key findings and recommendations. The meetings will be held:

  • Thursday, June 12 at 6 p.m.
    San Carlos Public Library, 2nd floor, meeting room A
    610 Elm St., San Carlos

  • Monday, June 16 at 6 p.m.
    Mountain View City Hall, Plaza Conference Room
    500 Castro St., Mountain View

  • Tuesday, June 17 at 6 p.m.
    Genentech Hall, Room S201
    University of California, San Francisco
    600 16th St., San Francisco

Now is the time to submit your comments regarding this plan. Click here to review key findings of the Bicycle Master Plan. To comment, attend one of the public meetings, send an e-mail to or write to Caltrain bicycle Master Plan, P.O. Box 3006, San Carlos, Ca 94070. Comments will be accepted through July 3.

You're confusing Caltrain with SMART. Santa Rosa = SMART. San Carlos = Caltrain.

Can you tell I am in a bad mood. Off to get bumped now...

Argh, totally wrong side of the Bay. I really should get somebody to proofread my writing. Thanks for pointing that out -- corrected now.
