  • The project has commenced.
  • It is not fully funded
    <quote ref=”FAQ“>Approximately 75 percent of service between San Jose and San Francisco will use EMUs. The remainder will use diesel locomotives. Full conversion to EMUs for the San Jose to San Francisco service will occur at a future time when funding is secured and the remaining diesel trains reach the end of their service life.</quote>
