Caltrain seeking bicycle committee members

 

Caltrain is seeking representatives to join its bicycle advisory committee to promote the interests and perspectives of bicyclists for integration into the California commuter rail line's planning process.

The committee is comprised of nine volunteers as well as Caltrain staff members and aims to bring new ideas and guidance to Caltrain's bicycle-related investments.

Issues often discussed by the committee include accommodating bicycles on board, bicycle parking at Caltrain stations, bicycle safety, etiquette and more.

Since Caltrain serves San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties, committee applicants must be residents of one of those counties.

The bicycle advisory committee is comprised of nine volunteer members, three from each county.

One member from each county represents a public agency staff member, a bicycle advocacy organization member and a Caltrain bike passenger who represents the general public.

There are four open spots on the committee: San Francisco County — public agency, San Mateo County — public agency, San Mateo County — bike organization and Santa Clara County — general public.

Applications are available at caltrain.com/bac or by calling 650-508-6495. The deadline to apply is Monday, Nov. 30.

Representatives on the committee meet every other month for a public meeting at 5:45 p.m. in San Carlos, one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.

More than 6,000 of Caltrain's roughly 60,000 daily customers bring bikes onboard, according to Caltrain.
