150 years ago Southern Pacific began service between San Jose and San Francisco. We know this service today as Caltrain, a route with big plans for modernization, and possibly high-speed rail, in the near future. Hear from the father of modern transit service in Silicon Valley about the history and future of the peninsula commute.
