Caltrain, Calif. High-Speed Rail Authority partner

Posted on April 3, 2009

The Caltrain board of directors unanimously approved an agreement with the California High Speed Rail Authority to establish an initial organizational framework where the authority and Caltrain will engage as partners in planning, design and construction of improvements along the Caltrain corridor, serving both the near-term and long-term needs of high-speed rail and Caltrain.

 

The goal is for the parties to incorporate high-speed rail in the Caltrain corridor on a phased basis.

 

“Community outreach is an extremely important part of this agreement,” said Santa Clara County Supervisor Don Gage, who is chair of the Caltrain board and also serves on the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. “As we move forward, there will be many opportunities for people to voice their opinions. I would encourage everyone to participate in the process.”

 

The full agreement can be viewed here.
