Public meetings about closure of Atherton Caltrain station to be held over the next two weeks

by Contributed Content on July 28, 2020

Caltrain will hold a public meeting on the proposed closure of the Atherton Caltrain Station on Wednesday, July 29. A public hearing will follow at the Board of Director’s meeting on August 6th.

Prior to the coronavirus  pandemic, the Atherton Caltrain Station received limited weekend-only service every 90 minutes with an average of 114 passengers per weekend day. Weekday service to the station was cut in 2005 due to low demand.

In January of this year, the Town of Atherton tentatively endorsed the closure of the Atherton station subject to an agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two parties. The station’s closure would result in reduced noise and increased safety for Atherton residents. Atherton is in the process of redeveloping its Civic Center, and closing the station would free up additional property for that project.
