Expanded Community Advisory Panel (XCAP)

The Expanded Community Advisory Panel, known as "XCAP" was an advisory group that was part of Connecting Palo Alto, a community-based process to address rail grade separations and the increased traffic congestion expected when Caltrain electrifies the tracks and runs more trains through the corridor. Community feedback and collaboration are a vital part of this decision-making process that will affect future generations to come.

Connecting Palo Alto

XCAP was a group of Palo Altans and other stakeholders tasked with evaluating all the information related to the grade crossing alternatives for rail crossings. The group, a Brown Act body, could vote and make recommendations directly to the City Council. The City Manager’s Office provided staffing to the XCAP.
