Altmont Express could live up to its name

A story about this was in today’s paper.

Traveling from Stockton to San Jose takes more than two hours on the Altamont Express Corridor, which makes its most important stop in Fremont’s Centerville district.

But some planner types have studied udgrading the corridor with faster electric trains that can zip through the route in about one hour. They’d even like to add some stations along the way, maybe in Fremont.

You can see the plans yourself from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Fremont Teen Center, 39770 Paseo Padre Parkway.
