Any new money coming in should be used first to keep stations open. If that means M-F peak commute service only, covering all stations, so be it. Its more important to serve all communities going to work, than to have empty trains running off-peak hours for misc trips.

Our Mountain View representative on the VTA board deserves a lot of credit for coaxing this through the system (as presiding officer). How come no mention of her name?

re: "SamTrans has proposed cutting back its share of funding of Caltrain this year from $14.7 million to $4.8 million after several years of using its own one-time sources."
Close stations in San Mateo County then! Only half joking.
