SamTrans June Service Changes
Effective Sunday June 24, 2018, SamTrans will adjust several of its routes to improve on-time performance and add service to grow ridership and improve efficiency. All changes affect weekday schedules, unless otherwise noted.
New timetables soon will be available on SamTrans buses and at city halls, libraries and at www.samtrans.com. Consult new timetables or call 1-800-660-4287 (TTY 650-508-6448).
