Eshoo on Caltrain Funding Decision: This is an ‘Alleluia’ Moment

May 22nd, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s decision to fully fund the Caltrain Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project (PCEP).

 

“The announcement by the Secretary of Transportation today to fully fund the electrification of Caltrain is a clear victory for my constituents and the people of the Bay Area.

 

“This critical upgrade is one of the key transportation job creators in the country. It will enhance the spine of the Silicon Valley transportation system. It’s a win for the environment. It’s a win for the tenaciousness of the Bay Area Congressional Delegation, led by Leader Pelosi and our Senators Feinstein and Harris.

 

“Passenger service began on this corridor during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln over 150 years ago. Today, I am proud that our generation is able to build something worthy of the future of our region.

 

“This is an ‘Alleluia’ moment.”
