Strategic Planning for Passenger Rail

Lunchtime Forum

We're making some changes to improve your experience with SPUR events.
Starting this June, you'll need to register for each event you plan to attend. This will help us tailor events and keep you informed of any changes to our schedule. You can register using the link in the Admission section below.


Two of the major passenger rail services that serve Santa Clara County, Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) and Capitol Corridor, are in the midst of developing new strategic plans that align with the 2018 California State Rail Plan, which calls for a coordinated, statewide network through new operation and capital investment strategies. Come learn how both services, which together operate over 250 miles of track and serve nearly 3 million riders annually, plan to comply with the state’s goals while continuing to offer consistent, reliable service to San Jose from the Central Valley and beyond.
