Cut weekend service ... GREAT IDEA!!! Please start now!! As a matter of fact, I encourage CalTrain to only run during peak commute hours. For example, 6 - 9 am, and 5 - 8 pm, Monday - Friday. With fuel prices high, and the economy low, there is no reason for these large locomotives to run underutilized.

Please don't get me wrong, I commute on Caltrain, and take it to both SFO and SJC. I love the trains when they are full, and dread them running empty. Bus service from station to station, is adequate for the few weekend riders.

CalTrain, please act now. Cut weekend service, and save the money for electrification.
