Bus Stop Improvement Plan

The Bus Stop Improvement Project (BSIP) identifies bus stop features and amenities that SamTrans riders, local governments, and community members value, and lays out a plan for improving bus stops across the SamTrans network.

Project Timeline: Mid-2022 through 2023. Please check back for updates.

Bus stops are the gateway to SamTrans. There are approximately 1,400 bus stops that are owned and managed by multiple cities across the SamTrans service area. In this project, SamTrans is gathering input from local governments, neighbors and the riding public to learn which bus stop improvements matter most to the communities SamTrans serves. The BSIP will focus on the comfort and experience of using and accessing bus stops, including amenities, as well as operational improvements to the stops.

Your feedback will help SamTrans develop a list of bus stop improvements to complete and a plan for making the updates across the SamTrans service area in coordination with local governments. SamTrans will also use your input to create guidelines that show the features and amenities that different types of bus stops should have.

This project is the first step in creating an overarching strategy to improve stops throughout the SamTrans bus network and will help guide future investments in bus stops.

Depending on the unique conditions of each stop, improvements could include: 

  • Adding benches and shelters
  • Displaying real-time arrival information
  • Improving boarding areas
  • Enhancing lighting
  • Installing trash receptacles

Stay tuned for opportunities to submit your input on bus stops! For more information, contact the project team: BSIP@SamTrans.com
