Reimagine SamTrans

Reimagine SamTrans

Reimagine SamTrans is the name of our agency’s comprehensive operational analysis (COA). By combining data analysis, innovative thinking, and input from the community, Reimagine SamTrans will develop a new and more efficient bus network to better meet the public transit and mobility needs of San Mateo County.

The goals of Reimagine SamTrans are to:

  • Improve the experience for existing SamTrans customers
  • Grow new and more frequent ridership on SamTrans
  • Build SamTrans’ efficiency and effectiveness as a mobility provider

Where are we now?

After hearing from the community and evaluating the ridership and reliability of each SamTrans route, the project team developed three new potential bus system alternatives. Each alternative sets a different vision for future bus service in San Mateo County, each with its own benefits and trade-offs. Now, we are taking input from the community on these alternatives. This input will be used to create a new bus system proposal later this year for the public to weigh in on.

Tell Us What You Think!

Help shape the future bus and mobility system in San Mateo County.
