Progress regarding Caltrain.

I won't say we have them on the run, but they are at least digging out their track shoes...

Update from Caltrain board meeting held November 6
Caltrain staff intends to present two options for modestly increasing
onboard bicycle capacity to the Joint Powers Board (Caltrain board) at the
board meeting on January 8, 2009. No word on what those two options are
yet, and we're concerned that Caltrain may not adequately address
cyclists needs. We'll need a strong presence at the board meeting, so
please mark your calendar for 10am, Thursday, January 8 at 1250 San Carlos

I saw them doing some testing/surveying last week.

At PA and Mtn View (NB eve bullet) they allowed as many bikes that would not interfere with the isle, and took a count of how many bikes were on board after at each stop.

I assume they did the same for Hillsdale, Millbrae, etc... but I get off at Hillsdale.

I've seen a similar thing on a couple morning trains as well...
