SamTrans Hosts Community Meetings

More information about the plan can be found on a project website that will be used to keep the public informed and to gather input during the process. The website will be a resource for all project-related information, including study materials. The dedicated website can be reached from a landing page on the SamTrans website: www.samtrans.com/ssp.
In addition to the website, information will be available on SamTrans buses and on SamTrans' Facebook page and Twitter feed. The public can also call the project message line at 650-508-6338 (for English and Spanish speakers) or send comments by email to email@example.com.
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. SamTrans also manages paratransit services; administers Caltrain; operates a shuttle program; and partnered with BART to develop the extension to Millbrae. In addition, SamTrans is the managing agency for the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, which was formed to administer the proceeds of a half-cent sales tax for local transportation improvements.
