The Air District’s Board of Directors approved the allocation of $3 million to support the electrification of the Caltrain corridor between San Francisco and San Jose.

Spare the Air Status

Transitioning to electric-powered trains will result in zero emissions locally and eliminate the release of over 315 tons of diesel-related particulates per year in surrounding communities. Exposure to diesel exhaust can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs while contributing to more serious health impacts over time.

Caltrain expects to start operating electric trains by the spring of 2022.
