History of the Organization:

The San Mateo County Transit District is the administrative body for public transit and transportation programs in San Mateo County, California: Caltrain commuter rail service, SamTrans bus service, including Redi-Wheels paratransit service, and the managing agency for the San Mateo County Transportation Authority. The District transports approximately 32 million customers a year and is one of the nation’s top transit agencies.

Caltrain is in the process of modernizing its rail system including the advancement of several infrastructure and systems projects. These include the installation of its Positive Train Control (PTC) solution and electrifying the railroad as part of the Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project (PCEP). This is an exciting time in the 150-year history of the railway, and one that offers many opportunities for growth. The $1.98 billion electrification project, which is expected to be operational by 2021, will improve Caltrain’s system performance and capacity so that we can accommodate more riders on more state of the art electric trains.
