Is Caltrain Real-time actually “real-time”?
What is Caltrain Real-time and where can I find it? You can now receive Caltrain news via e-mail! The system will never predict trains departing early at the stations.
While customers are at the stations, Caltrain strongly advises everyone to stand behind the yellow line at all times. I receive this error message on the website: Caltrain keeps the train approaching announcements available at all times as a caution reminder to customers calltrain the stations. What can I expect from “real-time”?
Once service is back to normal, predictions will be reactivated. On the Caltrain website and the system presents a countdown to the departure time. Caltrain offers additional service to accommodate extra riders to local events. Why are there train numbers different from the scheduled timetable?
Weekday Timetable – (Scrolling)
Most of the special service predictions also will be available on the Caltrain Real-time system. Customers should always remain behind the yellow safety line on the platforms. Calrtain refer to the timetableif the train, station and schedule is marked, make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the train departure time.
At the Caltrain stations, the system provides status updates if a train is predicted tmietable depart more than 2 minutes late from the scheduled time. During the implementation and testing phase, the project team noticed the lateness of some of the announcements at the stations.
Not all the trains will be announced when approaching a station. What happens to the predictions at stations where the train may leave up to 5 minutes earlier as noted in the timetable? I do not see any predictions on the website.
Caltrain Service Changes
Caltrain Real-time uses a combination of locomotive-equipped Global Positioning System and a rail operating control system to determine train location and departure prediction provided by the scheduled time.
The term “real-time” describes the predictive time when Caltrain will depart, not arrive, from a scheduled station. This is temporary and should come back online. Can you turn off the audio announcements during certain hours of the day?
During a major service interruption, predictions are turned off when in manual mode.
