Caltrain is moving closer to developing a final draft governance recommendation, with staff expected to present the board a final option Jan. 6 to clarify the role and authority of SamTrans in running Caltrain.

Caltrain has committed to developing and approving a governance change recommendation to address board oversight issues of the executive director and support for a right-of-way repayment to SamTrans. The role of SamTrans in Caltrain has been an issue for the board. Caltrain board members from San Francisco and Santa Clara counties are pushing for change to the three-county train system’s governance structure to ensure more equity in decision-making and clarity about staffing.
