Caltrain service suspended June 8-9 from SJ to SF – The Mercury News


Training for electrification

Caltrain is suspending all train service between San Francisco and San Jose the weekend of June 8-9 to accommodate the testing of its new electric fleet.

Limited capacity replacement bus service will stop at the San Jose Diridon, Palo Alto and Millbrae stations. There will be no replacement bus or train service at other stations. Buses will have limited capacity for luggage and bikes. Riders can use bike parking options, which are available at most stations. Buses will be ADA accessible.

According to Caltrain, the electrified system, due to debut in September, will mean faster and more frequent service, including doubling the frequency on weekends. The new trains will have WiFi, power outlets at every seat, onboard displays with digital trip information, and increased storage capacities.
