I got involved in the process of trying for a better bike car layout for electrified Caltrain because Caltrain’s proposal so clearly did not meet the needs of its customers. That’s what we are — paying customers.
I was encouraged that Caltrain held its community workshops and I attended, happy to see that input was being taken from the community. Now I understand that I’ve been duped. It was all a show: a well-rehearsed performance that Caltrain was doing the right thing when really they were just putting a tick in the box.
Good luck with the electrification, that part I’m excited about, but standing next to my bike to prevent theft for every train ride? Not so much.
Thanks, Caltrain, for the entertainment.
