Currently, proposals for the future Caltrain-high speed rail blended system are limited to two- or three-tracks within Menlo Park. The City Council's current position is to support only a two-track alignment through Menlo Park. The full position is outlined in the City's rail policy, as can be found on the rail project information page. This study will consider the work being performed for California high speed rail and Caltrain modernization projects, but is independent of these efforts.
