Caltrain is an essential part of the Bay Area’s transportation network, but we’re at risk of losing it due to COVID-19.
This pandemic won’t last forever and traffic will return. Imagine how much worse it will be without Caltrain keeping millions of cars off our roads every year.
Measure RR saves Caltrain from shutdown, and improves the system, providing faster and more frequent trains, better connections to local transportation networks, thousands of good-paying jobs and cleaner, quieter trains to reduce noise and air pollution.
Transportation studies indicate that Measure RR’s improvements will put the equivalent of two lanes of highway traffic on Caltrain by running trains more frequently.
Strict fiscal accountability — including citizens’ oversight and annual public audits — ensures that Measure RR is spent as promised. Legally, all funds must support the Caltrain system within Santa Clara, San Mateo and San Francisco counties — nothing can be taken by the State or used for any other purpose.

That’s why regional leaders, environmental advocates, traffic experts, local labor unions and the business community support Measure RR.
As the Bay Area recovers from the pandemic and people get back to work, traffic congestion will return. Let’s make sure we don’t lose a vital lifeline and affordable transit alternative in the process.
