With summer vacation in full-swing, returning to school is probably the last thing on your mind, but we have urgent news...

NOTICE: Your bus route may change August 7th!


Upcoming School-Oriented Service Changes

Effective August 7, 2022.      

SamTrans will implement changes to many of its school-oriented routes. These route changes are included in the final Reimagine SamTrans plan, an in-depth analysis of the bus system designed to improve service throughout the county. These upcoming changes will improve efficiency while maintaining service for many students who rely on SamTrans to get to school.

There will also be schedule adjustments made to several routes in response to changing school bell schedules for the 2022/23 school year. 

SamTrans will implement changes to many of its school-oriented routes. These route changes are included in the final Reimagine SamTrans Plan, which was an in-depth analysis of the bus system with the goal of improving service and responding to changing ridership in San Mateo County.

New Routes New local Route 142 will serve some areas previously served by Routes 140 and 141. Existing school-oriented service on Routes 110, 112, 130, 140, 141, 250, 251, 278 and 286 will continue to be provided on the following new Routes 10, 12, 30, 40, 41, 42, 50, 51, 78 and 86

Consolidated Routes Local Routes 274, 275 and 278 will be consolidated into Route 278. Local Routes 251 and 256 will be consolidated into a revised Route 251. SamTrans will consolidate school-oriented Routes 39, 55, 95 and 84 into Routes 37, 53, 61 and 83, respectively. In each case, two existing school-oriented routes will become one route that serves more neighborhoods to the same schools. In some cases, this would result in a longer ride for some students, but service to almost all areas with existing ridership would still be available.  

Eliminated Routes Local Route 140 will be eliminated and replaced by service on Routes 141 and 142. School-oriented Route 80 will be eliminated. Morning service on school-oriented Routes 85 and 87 will be discontinued.
