all aboard! ace train expands megaregion rail service
Starting tomorrow (Sept. 7), ACE Train and the San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission will launch Saturday service to better connect the megaregion. ACE currently operates Monday through Friday from Stockton to San Jose with stops in Lathrop/Manteca, Tracy, Livermore, Pleasanton, Fremont, Great America, and Santa Clara. The new service offers an exciting and convenient option for weekend commuters and leisure travelers. It represents just the kind of robust transportation service the Bay Area Council has long advocated for as part of its work to strengthen rail service connections to meet the needs of the fast-growing megaregion. Funding for the ACE Saturday Service, which will launch as a one-year pilot program, comes from SB1, which the Council helped pass. To engage in the Council’s transportation policy work, please contact Senior Vice President Gwen Litvak.
