Caltrain Sees Uptick in Ridership

Caltrain has added more bike-friendly cars.
News stories gave some good news about Caltrain and other area public transit agencies.

Caltrain saw an 11.6 percent increase in ridership from June 2010 to June 2011. It’s encouraging to read about, especially when Caltrain recently started ensuring more bike-friendly cars per train during commute hours.

While a lack of guaranteed funding is still a fundamental problem for Caltrain, increased ridership sends the strongest possible message that a public transit is worth financing.
