Oh man, it’s all going to turn around for you now. Why? Cause you’re going to have a chance to join the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board Citizens Advisory Committee.
Yes, you can! San Carlos, here we come!
The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board is seeking applicants for its Citizens Advisory Committee to represent San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The CAC is comprised of nine volunteer members, who serve in an advisory capacity to the board of directors, providing input on the needs of current and potential rail customers.
Applicants should be residents of one of the three counties, and applications are due by 5 p.m., Monday, May 11. The CAC meets the third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in San Carlos, just one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station. All meetings are open to the public.
Caltrain operates 98 trains each weekday between San Francisco and San Jose, with commute-hour service to Gilroy, and hourly weekend service between San Francisco and San Jose. Last year, Caltrain carried nearly 12 million riders, and currently it carries an average weekday ridership of more than 40,000.
