Potential rail strike would halt Caltrain service between Gilroy and San Jose


Federal officials announced a tentative agreement late Wednesday between Union Pacific and unions representing workers, avoiding service interruptions anticipated Friday for Caltrain between Gilroy and San Jose.


CalTrain officials plan to suspend service between Gilroy and the Capitol station in San Jose if freight rail workers for Union Pacific go out on strike Friday.

The rail corridor that CalTrain uses for this service is owned by Union Pacific, according to a news release from CalTrain. The Gilroy segment is served by three trains each morning and evening.

Other Caltrain service north from Tamien station will be unaffected.

Caltrain advises riders who use the stations between Capitol and Gilroy—as well as southbound passengers at Tamien—to plan alternate transportation starting on Friday. 

Caltrain is working with the Valley Transportation Authority on potential bus bridge alternatives and will post additional information on the Caltrain website within the next few days.
