Here's some feedback--Shut Caltrain down! It's a black hole that sucks every taxpayer dollar it can, and provides very little back in terms of adding to the economy of the Silicon Valley.

This is another failed exercise in social engineering.

I don't think the blind girl who can't get to work any other way would agree with you.

Everyone will win if Caltrain gets shot down. Lives will be saved.

glad to see some support for closing caltrain. thought I was the only one to feel this way. high speed rail (or cars for that matter) right down the middle of a town makes no sense. it brings no economic value to Palo Alto or any other community between san jose and san francisco. there are other cheaper and safer ways to get Palo Altons to work who need assistance.
