San José, Calif. – The following is a statement from San José Mayor Sam Liccardo regarding the CalTrain financial viability proposal being offered today in San Francisco and Santa Clara Counties.

“As a Board Member of the Valley Transportation Agency and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, I have long recognized the importance of CalTrain service to our region, and have repeatedly supported efforts to save the service from financial demise.

I believe we have fashioned—with colleagues in San Francisco and Santa Clara Counties— a viable compromise that addresses the core needs of the agency to operate in the immediate future, and to substantially expand service in the future and collaboratively resolve these longstanding disparities in governance.

I encourage San Mateo County’s elected and appointed leaders to rise to the collaborative spirit that this moment requires.”
