Beginning Sunday, Jan. 13, SamTrans will change 19 bus routes in an effort to improve on-time performance and better serve customers, agency officials said this week.
SamTrans reviews and adjusts its schedules three times a year to respond to changes in traffic patterns and customer demand.
Students and parents are advised to review the new timetables before heading back to school as many of the changes impact service to schools.
Adjustments will be made to the following routes:
- Coastside: Routes 14, 17, 110 and 118
- North County: Routes 24, 36, 38 and 133
- Central County: Routes 43, 54, 140 and 141
- South County: Routes 85 and 260
- Multi-city: Routes 292, 295, 296, 297 and ECR
On Route 17, the bus stop at the Half Moon Bay Community Center will be eliminated due to low ridership. Major adjustments will be made to weekday service in the northbound direction before noon and in the southbound direction after noon. Changes also will be made to southbound weekend service in Montara.
On Route 140, major service adjustments will be made to all schedules to improve on-time performance, connections with BART and transfers at Pacific Manor to Routes 110, 112 and 118.
The new timetables are posted on the SamTrans website at www.samtrans.com/upcomingchanges.
An overview of the service changes also is available in the SamTrans Rider’s Digest, which can be found on the website, at the bottom of the page listing the new timetables.
