Caltrain must be able to continue their rail operations during the future construction of Palo Alto’s grade separations. They have established criteria for the City to use as a design guide for grade separations. Caltrain will need to confirm the preferred alternatives from Palo Alto to ensure the criteria are met.
The City requested information from Caltrain in a letter in 2018. Caltrain provided a response in this letter on December 19, 2018.
Caltrain is also undergoing a business plan discussion concurrent with the grade separation discussions. The business plan anticipates growth scenarios for Caltrain service. Information and Caltrain discussions on the business plan are at: caltrain2040.org.
