ACE Train

The San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission is hosting a special rider event on May 3, 2002. Ride ACE for free and join hosts and dignitaries at the Tracy ACE Station, 4800 Tracy Boulevard, for an opportunity to voice your support for ACE services. This event is particularly important for those riders interested in seeing the expansion of ACE services to include additional arrival and departure times suited to Tri-Valley work schedules and those seeking the expansion of commute opportunities into Santa Clara. Your participation will both demonstrate support for ACE services and help ACE gauge specific needs for new rail service.

Free ACE Tickets on May 3rd
As part of the event ACE will provide riders with a free Round Trip Ticket to try the train service on May 3rd. ACE trains currently operate with a schedule designed to meet many Tri-Valley work hours, and commuters whose work hours are generally 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. will find ACE train service both ways. ACE will also assist commuters who participate in the May 3 event whose work hours end between 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. with special return service home via shuttle. Be sure and note your evening departure needs when ordering your event tickets.

Meet with Federal, State and Local Transportation Officials
ACE further invites you to participate in a meeting with federal, state and local transportation officials at a special function to be held at the Tracy station the morning of May 3. The station is located at 4800 Tracy Boulevard in Tracy. Participants will include: Congressman Richard Pombo, U.S. Representative, 11th District; Congressman Thomas Petri, Chairman, House Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee; Mayor Dan Bilbrey, City of Tracy; and Mr. Phillip Pennino, Chairman, San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission. These officials will present information on the future of ACE and will be soliciting comments from ACE riders on services needs. Presentations will begin at 6:30 a.m. and will conclude prior to the departure of the last ACE train from Tracy.
