About the Project

Caltrain electrification is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program that will electrify the Caltrain Corridor from San Franciscoā€™s 4th and King Station to approximately the Tamien Station in San Jose and convert diesel-hauled to Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains. Caltrain electrification will improve Caltrain system performance, enable more frequent and/or faster train service, and reduce long-term environmental impact by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Caltrain electrification is scheduled to be operational by 2021.
