Caltrain's average weekday ridership in June was a record 50,390, an 11 percent increase over June 2011, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, which governs Caltrain, announced Thursday, Aug. 2.
Due to the increased ridership, Caltrain plans to restore four midday trains that were eliminated last year due to budget cuts, and add two new evening trains in the fall.
Caltrain attributes the growing ridership in part to schedule changes and increased Baby Bullet express service.
Caltrain revenue in the fiscal year that ended June 30 totaled $59.8 million, a 22 percent increase over the previous year, according to Caltrain spokesperson Christine Dunn.
