Community, Riders Invited to Review Possible Changes to SamTrans Service

SamTrans will hold a series of workshops to get feedback from the community and riders about possible changes to its bus service. People will be asked to consider three possible scenarios and weigh the tradeoff between increasing service on some routes and reducing service on others.

The workshops are part of the SamTrans Service Plan, which is taking a close look at how to best meet the community’s changing needs while making the most of the transit district’s resources. SamTrans last took an in-depth look at its service about 10 years ago.
