The Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project (PCEP), will electrify and upgrade the performance, operating efficiency, capacity, and reliability of Caltrain's commuter rail service by electrifying the Caltrain line and replacing 75% of the diesel fleet with high performance electric train sets. The new EMUs provides the flexibility to increase the frequency of service without adding travel time and/or reduce the overall travel time from one end of the corridor to the other. This important improvement allows for increased capacity on the corridor and makes it possible for Caltrain to serve more customers at more stations. The project does not contemplate any changes to existing Caltrain stations or roadway crossings.
