    • Caltrain Modernization Program Update Palo Alto City Council Rail Committee August 10, 2012
    • Presentation Topics 1. State Legislature Update 2. Next Steps for the Peninsula 3. Blended System Planning Analysis Update 4. Discussion
    • State Legislature Update
    • Green Light for HSR & Blended System• Bay Area State Assembly and Senate support – Elaine Alquist, D-San Jose – Tom Ammiano, D- San Francisco – Jim Beall, D-San Jose – Nora Campos, D-San Jose – Paul Fong, D-Mountain View – Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park – Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo – Mark Leno, D-San Francisco – Fiona Ma, D-San Francisco – Leland Yee, D-San Francisco
    • SB 1029• Appropriates $705 million for Caltrain Modernization – $600 million from Prop 1A (HSR) – $105 million from Prop 1A (Connectivity)• Funds available for: – “blended system improvements consistent with the MOU” and – “shall not be used to expand the system to a dedicated four-track system”• Bonds sold and allocated to project by State Controller
    • Next Steps for the Peninsula
    • Project Delivery Focus• Early Investment (2019) – Define outreach/decision-making structure and process – Advanced Signal System  Advance design from “Critical” to “Final” – Electrification & Electric Vehicles  Update / Recirculate Caltrain EA/EIR  Define project delivery approach/team• Blended System (2029) – Complete current planning studies – Schedule for completing planning process
    • Blended System Planning Update
    • Blended System Planning ProcessCapacity Analysis Service Plan / Operations Grade Crossing & Considerations Traffic Analysis Service Plan OptionsInfrastructure Need Fleet Need Revenue / Cost Decision-Making Matrix Blended System Alternatives Design & Environmental Review
    • Blended SystemService Plan/Operations Considerations Analysis
    • Purpose / Goals • Consider service / operations variables not included in capacity analysis • Requested by stakeholders • Inform development of service plan options
    • Scope of Work
    • Passing Track OptionsOptions Locations4 Tracks – Northern Milepost 5 to 15.2 (Bayshore to Millbrae stations)4 Tracks - Full Midline Milepost 18.1 to 27.2 (Hayward Park to Redwood City stations)4 Tracks - Short Midline Milepost 18.1 to 24.2 (Hayward Park to Whipple Ave.)4 Tracks - Southern Milepost 33.8 to 41.6 (San Antonio to Lawrence station)3 Tracks Milepost 18.1 and 33.7 (Hayward Park to California Ave. )
    • Simulation Model Results• 4 Track Options Operational Performance Ranking High: Full Midline Medium: Short Midline & Southern Low : Northern• 3 Track Option –Model: high performance –Practice: further evaluation
    • Decision Matrix (work in progress) ConsiderationsPassing Track Options Operations E&C ROW Cost City / County4 Tracks - Northern4 Tracks - Full Midline4 Tracks - Short Midline4 Tracks - Southern3 Tracks
    • Blended SystemGrade Crossing & Traffic Analysis
    • Study Purpose & Goals• 40 at-grade crossings• Identify relationship between: – Train service levels – Gate down time – Local traffic• Analyze future scenarios (2035): – Impacts from Caltrain versus future growth – Difference between service plan options• Improvement recommendations
    • Key Tasks and Status
    • Discussion
