Media Contact: Mahmoud Abunie, 650-730-6201
The San Mateo County Transit District (District) will be hosting a multilingual virtual community meeting this Thursday to get input on bus stops from SamTrans riders.
The Bus Stop Improvement Plan (BSIP), which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023, will lay out a plan for improving bus stops across the SamTrans network and help guide future investments in bus stops. It will include an inventory of existing bus stops in the SamTrans service area, clear bus stop design guidelines, and establish a process with cities for identifying and implementing bus stop improvements.

There is also an online survey that is open through April 30 and is available at www.SamTrans.com/BusStopSurvey. The survey asks riders to share their experience using SamTrans bus stops and rank a variety of amenities, such as seating, shelter, real-time bus arrival information, and trash cans. The survey results will help SamTrans create bus stop design guidelines and develop a list of improvements to make in coordination with local governments.
SamTrans has approximately 1,800 bus stops that are owned and managed by multiple cities and other jurisdictions across the SamTrans service area.
