Caltrain Cuts Service, Hikes Fees

Budget gap to blame

Caltrain riders had to start paying more and adjust to service changes starting Monday.

In an effort to close the agency's budget deficit, Caltrain is eliminating eight mid-day trains during the week. That means trains will run hourly instead of every half hour between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Officials expect the change could save the agency about $2 million.

Also starting Monday, monthly parking fees went up from $20 to $30, with daily parking fees going up by $1, making the fee $3 a day.

Caltrain declared a fiscal emergency in June because of a $3 million budget gap.
