San Francisco is planning for the future of the rail corridor in the city. SF Planning, the Transportation Authority, and Caltrain are studying options for rebuilding the 22nd Street Caltrain Station and building a new Caltrain station in the Bayview. The study will identify potential new Caltrain station locations that will better serve the Southeast neighborhoods and support future infrastructure projects, including Downtown Rail Extension, Pennsylvania Avenue Extension, Caltrain service expansion, and California High-Speed Rail

There will be a series of community meetings for the public to explore options for the 22nd Street station and the new Bayview District station.

Round 2: Conversations About Locations

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each site and engineering limitations. Both events will cover the same information.
