Caltrain weekkday the train approaching announcements available at all times as a caution reminder to customers at the stations. You can now receive Caltrain news via e-mail!
On schedle Caltrain website and the system presents a countdown to the departure time. While customers are at the stations, Caltrain strongly advises everyone to stand behind the yellow line at all times.
Can you turn off the audio announcements during certain hours of the day?
San Francisco Station
At the Caltrain stations, the system provides status updates if a train is predicted to depart more than 2 minutes late from the scheduled time. Why are there train numbers different from the scheduled timetable? During the implementation and testing phase, the project team noticed the lateness of some of the announcements at the stations.
Caltrain Real-time uses a combination of locomotive-equipped Global Positioning System and a rail operating control system to determine train location and departure prediction provided by the scheduled time. Once service is back to normal, predictions will be reactivated. Caltrain offers additional service to accommodate extra riders schddule local events.
What is Caltrain Real-time and where can I find it?
Mountain View Station
What can I expect from “real-time”? What happens to the predictions at stations where the train may leave up to 5 minutes earlier as noted in the timetable?
Please refer to the timetableif the train, station and schedule is marked, make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the train departure time.
The system will never predict trains departing early at the stations. Deekday receive this error message on the website: This is temporary and should come back online.
I do not see any predictions on the website. During a major service interruption, predictions are turned off when in manual mode. The term “real-time” describes the predictive time when Caltrain will depart, not arrive, from a scheduled station.
Most of the special service predictions also will be available on the Caltrain Real-time system.
Customers should always remain behind the yellow safety line on the platforms. Not all the trains will be announced when approaching a station.
Is Caltrain Real-time actually “real-time”?
