Berman Responds to Federal Transit Administration’s Approval to Fund Caltrain Electrification

Monday, May 22, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) released the following statement in response to the Federal Transit Administration’s approval of funding for the Caltrain Modernization Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project.

I’m relieved that Secretary Chao will approve funding for the Caltrain Electrification project. This critical project will expand Caltrain capacity, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create thousands of jobs, and improve the quality of life of residents in the 24th Assembly District. It’s time that transit on the Peninsula reflects the innovative and technological advancement that is so often spearheaded by our region.

Assemblymember Marc Berman represents the 24th Assembly District, which includes southern San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara County in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Website of Assemblymember Marc Berman: www.assembly.ca.gov/Berman
