SamTrans to Adjust Schedules

SamTrans to Adjust Schedules


In an effort to improve on-time performance and increase ridership, SamTrans is making adjustments to the schedules of 11 bus routes that will go into effect on Sunday, June 24.

Three times a year, SamTrans adjusts its scheduling and service operations to take into account changing traffic impacts, travel patterns and bus operator availability.

The new adjustments are as follows:

Route ECR go from having service every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes on weekdays and from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes on weekends. This is expected to be offset by the new ECR Rapid service that launches on June 24. In addition, late night service will be added between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m., beginning at Mission Street and Wellington Avenue in Daly City and ending at SFO Courtyard A. This service will not serve the Colma and Daly City BART stations as they are not open during those hours, and replaces Route 399 which is being discontinued due to low ridership.

Route 120 has added a new 4:06 a.m. express trip from the Colma BART Station to SFO.

Route 140 will move the time point at Sneath Lane at Cherry Avenue in order to avoid blocking traffic. The route will also be retimed.

Route 296 will replace time points at Newbridge Street and Saratoga Drive and Newbridge Street and Willow Road with a time point at Bay and University Avenue in order to avoid blocking traffic. The route will also be retimed.

Route 294 will eliminate weekend trips departing from Main Street and Poplar Avenue at 5:25 a.m. and San Mateo Medical Center at 4:26 a.m. due to low ridership.

Routes 130, 274, 275, 278, 281, and 292 will be retimed.

Routes 18, 60 and 286 will have summer school-day only service between Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 27. 

In addition, SamTrans has launched service to SFO that will run weeklong.
