Caltrain's board of directors this morning voted not to pursue station closures and to maintain its current train schedule through fiscal year 2012.

The board did vote to raise fares and parking fees, however.

In a 5-3 vote in San Carlos, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board adopted a resolution that would impose a 25-cent increase on the base fare and a $1 increase in daily parking fees at Caltrain lots.
