SamTrans and Caltrain Service in the Event of a BART Strike

SamTrans and Caltrain Service in the Event of a BART Strike

A BART strike will increase demand on public transportation. Commuters are encouraged, if possible, to use alternatives such as carpools, flexible hours or tele-commuting.

In the event of a BART strike, SamTrans buses will serve temporary stops outside San Mateo County BART stations.

Route KX will maintain its regular route, which travels between San Francisco and Palo Alto with a stop at San Francisco International Airport,

Caltrain will operate regular service. Many trains are already at capacity during the commute. Caltrain will monitor travel patterns and may add some service as train and crew availability permit. 

Parking will be free at the Millbrae BART Station. There also will be a shuttle between the Millbrae station and
San Francisco International Airport.

Both SamTrans and Caltrain accept Clipper cards with cash value. SamTrans riders do not need exact change; If a customer inserts more cash in the farebox than is needed, the farebox will issue a stored-value Change Card.
