Speeding Things Up

In its effort to modernize and speed service, Caltrain is seeking to implement level-boarding on all train cars when electrification is complete in 2019. Compared to the current 2-step climb into trains, the level boarding would cut passenger loading/unloading times, especially for those with bicycles and other bulky items. Officials estimate that an extra 15 seconds would be saved at every stop made. [SF Streetsblog]
