BayRail Alliance (formerly Peninsula Rail 2000) is an all volunteer transit consumer group working to realize a regional rail system that will ring the San Francisco Bay Area.
Key to this vision is an upgraded and expanded Caltrain system serving the Peninsula and San Jose-East Bay corridors. We also support the proposed California high speed 'bullet train' system, and integration of rail and other transit modes into a seamless system.
Quote of the Moment
"...Standard trains also serve more people. Expanding Caltrain and ACE

Commuters from everywhere from San Francisco to Stockton would have a
direct high-frequency train to San Jose.
Without another tax."
-- Mountain View Councilman Greg Perry, debating BART
extension proponent in SJ Mercury News, May 8, 2005
