Route Changes

Following adoption of the SamTrans Service Plan in May 2013, SamTrans staff immediately began the work to implement the changes.  To ensure customers can benefit as soon as possible, some changes were implemented in August 2013, with the balance of the changes taking place in January 2014 (see summary below).

New Bus Stop Sign: SamTrans is updating its bus stop sign design to make it easier for current and new customers  to recognize and read.  The new design also incorporates a unique bus stop identification number for each stop, which can be used to get real-time bus departure information from 511 and 511.org.  Installation of the new signs should begin in January 2014.  See the new design by clicking HERE.
