Caltrain is a rail service for commuters that ranges along the San Francisco Peninsula, through the South Bay and down to Gilroy. Caltrain as we know it today began in 1992, when the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board took control of operations. Caltrain’s mission is to provide a “safe, reliable, sustainable modern rail system that meets the growing mobility needs of the San Francisco Bay Area region.”
