What is Caltrain Real-time and where can I find it? 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.
Is Caltrain Real-time actually “real-time”? The term “real-time” describes the predictive time when Caltrain will depart, not arrive, from a scheduled station.
2017 Caltrain Service Changes
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. On the Caltrain website and the system presents a countdown to the departure time.
What can I expect from “real-time”?
I 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.
Caltrain Service Changes
Once service is back to normal, predictions will be reactivated. While customers are at the stations, Caltrain strongly advises everyone to stand behind the yellow line at all times. Not all the trains will be announced when approaching a station.
Why are there train numbers different from the scheduled timetable? Caltrain offers additional service to accommodate extra riders to local events. Most of the special service predictions also will be available on the Caltrain Real-time system. What happens to the predictions at stations where the train may leave up to 5 minutes earlier timetsble noted in the timetable?
The system will never predict trains departing early at the stations. 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.
Can you turn off the audio announcements during certain hours of the day? Caltrain keeps the train approaching announcements available at all times as a caution reminder to customers at the stations.
During the implementation and testing phase, the project team noticed the lateness of some of the announcements at the stations. Customers should always remain behind the yellow safety line on the platforms. You can now receive Caltrain news via e-mail!
