It’s 2016 and we’re still stuck in traffic. On average we spend 100 minutes a day driving and 38 hours a year in traffic jams. Exhaust fumes depress us. City parking is impossible. But, we need to get to work every day and so we're forced to tolerate the hassle of driving. We want to change this and we have a plan.
With onboard wi-fi you can make your time spent commuting more productive. Get your work done, check your email, or simply entertain yourself.
Skipped breakfast? Need your morning coffee? No problem. Our service offers a range of food and beverages to fuel you through your day.
With the traffic on the 101, trains are quicker than cars. Our new Leo Express trains are amongst the fastest in the world. Let's shorten your commute.
Our trains are hybrid electric. They're quiet so that you aren't disturbed. They're efficient so that the environment isn't disturbed.
How do you get to the train station? How do you get from the train station to the destination? That's part of our seamless service. Don't worry about it.
Start by loving the experience. Our approach enhances the user experience of your transit. Making it simple, speedy, and seamless. Truly delightful.
Our app learns your habits and rewards you for them. It'll automatically track available benefits such as loyalty points and tax breaks.
By seamlessly integrating with new & existing transportation options, we provide you with a variety of door-to-door options, allowing you to optimize for cost, speed or convenience.
Forget the days of scrambling through your various tickets. Our app will provide integrated payments & serve as your single ticket throughout your journey.
Enter your credit card information once, and then we'll keep it secure and ready for you to use at your convenience.
We have plans to expand where trains can take you. Providing these new services will be universally beneficial by making the Bay Area more accesible to everyone.
Employers will have new commuter options connecting the East Bay, San Francisco, and the mid-Peninsula. A wider network of transport will lift geographical restrictions that employees currently face when deciding where to live. Everyone wins.
We're also increasing the frequency of trains. Being delayed a full hour just becuase you missed your train by a minute is terrible. We're going to make that a thing of the past by adding 68 daily trains.
