Caltrain is adding two new trains and restoring four more in response to a record increase in ridership this year.
I love riding the train…
But recently, it’s become difficult. Parking can be a pain, with spots in my Caltrain lot often harder to find than a clean dog in a flea storm. Once parked, getting on board has become a new experience, akin to the images I see of rush hour train commuters in New York City and the East.
And, after squeezing onto the train, if I find a seat for the 50-minute journey, I feel lucky.
