Caltrain is seeking public input on the look of seats for its new electric multiple unit trains.

The railroad will conduct public outreach and polling July 24, 25 and 28. Riders also can complete the polls online through July 28.

Caltrain in May launched a website to gather input about the new electric trains. The site,, also provides details about the trains' other proposed features and amenities, including electrical outlets and cars to store bikes.

The site will enable riders to submit feedback on design options over the next several months.
