      Caltrain ridership down

      Low ridership is one of the problems preventing Caltrain from closing $12.5 million budget gap next year.

      Ridership has been declining since 2008. In March, for instance, weekday ridership dropped by 1.3%.

      If trends continue, the commuter railroad deficit could grow to $38.9 million by 2012.

      Midday, weekend and night service are on the table as proposed cuts. Caltrain officials say switching from diesel to electric will solve some of the railroad's problems.
