New Meeting Added to Review Possible Changes to SamTrans Service
SamTrans community members and riders will have another opportunity to review possible plans that would improve the efficiency of the bus system in the future.
SamTrans has held a series of public workshops to get feedback from the community about potential changes to its bus service. People have been asked to consider three different scenarios and weigh the tradeoff between increasing service on some routes and reducing service on others.
The new meeting date is scheduled for the following:
- Thursday, Dec. 8 – 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Municipal Services Building – Community Room
33 Arroyo Drive, South San Francisco
The following bus routes will get participants to the meeting site: 122, 132, 133, 390 and 391.
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.
To request translation services, please call 650-508-6338 and leave a message at least 72 hours before the workshop. Anyone wishing to review the presentation prior the meeting can download the materials at www.samtrans.com/ssp.
SamTrans fixed-route bus service began July 1, 1976 with the consolidation of 11 different city bus systems throughout the county. SamTrans currently operates 48 routes that serve nearly 50,000 riders on an average weekday.
