The board overseeing Caltrain will delay a series of service cuts and fare hikes for at least another two weeks.

Caltrain faces a $30 million budget deficit. The agency wants to raise fares, charge more for parking, close three stations, and eliminate rush hour baby bullet trains. But many riders voiced their opposition to those changes during a meeting in San Carlos on Thursday morning.

The three stations facing closure are Bayshore in San Francisco, Hayward Park in San Mateo, and Capitol in San Jose.
