Caltrain will start the new year with fare hikes and service cuts. Saturday, all fares will rise by 25 cents a zone. That means a trip between San Francisco and San Jose will cost 75 cents more each way.

Caltrain will also shrink its weekday schedule from 90 to 86 trains. But it is trying something new that could please passengers: Baby Bullet trains on the weekend for the next three months - that can make the trip from San Jose to San Francisco in about an hour, cutting a half-hour off the current trip.
