Why are there train numbers different from the scheduled timetable?
Is Caltrain Real-time caltraim “real-time”? While customers are at the stations, Caltrain strongly advises everyone to stand behind the yellow line at all times. I receive this error message on the website: Caltrain offers additional service to accommodate extra riders to local events.
The term “real-time” describes the predictive time when Caltrain will depart, not arrive, from a scheduled station.
Not all the trains will be announced when approaching a station. During the implementation and tometable phase, the project team noticed the lateness of some of the announcements at the stations.
What is Caltrain Real-time and where can I find it? You can now receive Caltrain news via e-mail!
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. 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. Once service is back to normal, predictions will be reactivated. What happens to the predictions at stations where the train may leave up to 5 minutes earlier as noted in the timetable?
Caltrain keeps the train approaching announcements available at all times as a caution reminder to customers at the stations. 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.
Can you turn off the audio announcements during certain hours of the day?
Customers should always remain behind the yellow safety line on the platforms. On the Caltrain website and the system presents a countdown to the departure time.
During a major service interruption, predictions are turned off when in manual mode. What can I expect from “real-time”?
I do not see any predictions on the website. This is temporary and should come back online. Most of the special service predictions also will be available on the Caltrain Real-time system.
