School Service Impacts: In response to COVID-19 and given the operating constraints posed by the pandemic, SamTrans cannot maintain all of the routes traditionally serving schools. SamTrans is not serving those schools using a virtual classroom setting for the start of their school year.

Status of routes can be found online at www.samtrans.com/get2school.

Effective August 16, 2020
