Facing a projected deficit of over $10 million, Caltrain will hold public meetings Wednesday of next week to give Peninsula residents a chance to weigh in on plans to balance the agency's budget.
Those plans could include increasing fees, suspending weekend service and service to Gilroy, and reducing midday service.
To discuss those ideas, a meeting for South Bay residents will be held May 27 at 6 p.m. in the VTA Administrative Offices Auditorium, 3331 North First Street, San Jose. For mid-Peninsula residents, a meeting will be held concurrently at Caltrain's headquarters, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos.
Comments on Caltrain's plans will be accepted until June 4, when the agency's board is scheduled to review the various proposals. The comments may be sent by e-mail to email@example.com; by mail to District Secretary, Caltrain, PO Box 3006, San Carlos, 94070; or by phone to (800) 660-4287.
