Now available to purchase and stream on-demand!

This webinar will discuss the latest on the construction in Central Valley, the Caltrain Electrification Project, and the Merced to Gilroy Section. Capacity Implications like how many passengers are anticipated per hour, and how the passenger carrying capacity compares to that of a 10-lane freeway will be discussed. This webinar will also provide the latest information related to Station Area Development in Fresno and San Jose.
