SamTrans Business Plan

The Plan identifies three core principles of focus over the next 5-10 years: 1) sustaining and enhancing services for the transit-dependent; 2) expanding and innovating mobility services; and 3) promoting programs that relieve traffic congestion. San Mateo County Transit District staff has adopted a strategic planning document entitled the SamTrans Business Plan, which identifies immediate, near-term and long-term actions to affirm the District's position as a mobility leader and ensure the organization meets current and future transportation needs. Within the three core principles, the Plan identifies 16 initiatives that are in various stages of implementation or planning.

The Business Plan is rooted in prior planning efforts and documents, especially the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan identified three main priorities: expand mobility options for SamTrans customers, strengthen its fiscal health and become a more effective organization. The Business Plan takes Priority 1 of the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan, Expand Mobility Options, and more clearly affirms the role of SamTrans as San Mateo County’s mobility manager by identifying specific initiatives.

The SamTrans Business Plan was adopted on Sept. 5, 2018.
