398 This route will be discontinued and replaced by existing/new service. The resources used to operate Route 398 will allow SamTrans to improve or add new service. Riders may use the following alternate routes based on the start and end points of their trip:
 
  • Use Route ECR between Redwood City and Hillsdale on El Camino Real.

  • Use Route EPX between Redwood City and SFO/downtown San Francisco.

  • Use Route 292 or Caltrain between Hillsdale and SFO/downtown San Francisco.

  • Use Route FCX between 101/3rd St and downtown San Francisco.

  • Use Route 292 or BART at Millbrae Transit Center between San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and downtown San Francisco.
ECR Weekday and weekend trips will be adjusted to improve on-time performance and weekend service will increase to every 15 minutes instead of every 20 minutes.

Some bus stops that are underused or close to other stops will no longer be served or relocated. Consolidating the bus stops will increase reliability along the El Camino corridor and make your trip faster. With this change, some riders may need to use a different stop than their regular one. See signs at stops.
EPX Ready for electric-powered express service with 45-minute all-day service on weekdays?
Route EPX will provide limited stop express service between East Palo Alto, Redwood City, SFO Airport, and San Bruno BART. Two trips in the morning and two trips in the afternoon will extend to downtown San Francisco. EPX will operate in the express lanes on Highway 101 to travel quickly and reliably up and down the Peninsula. Riders will pay the local fare only.
FCX Riders will pay the local fare only.
