Reimagine SamTrans

Summer 2021 Project Status

Reimagine SamTrans has developed three bus network alternatives with potential changes to every route in the bus system. The project team gathered and analyzed public input from April 5 – June 6, 2021 and compiled this summary report for public viewing and downloading. The full report with appendices is available here. Findings from this analysis will help SamTrans design a Preferred Alternative with one more round of public input in Fall 2021.

Welcome to Reimagine SamTrans

Reimagine SamTrans is the name of our agency’s comprehensive operational analysis (COA). By combining data, innovative thinking, and input from the community, Reimagine SamTrans will develop the best transportation system to meet the public transit and mobility needs of San Mateo County. We are working hard ensure the project reflects changing travel patterns and community challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Potential service changes and new SamTrans networks were developed during Winter 2020-21 and made public for community input during Spring 2021. The proposed service changes will then be refined based on public input, with a final round of public input taking place in Fall 2021. Implementation of the preferred network is anticipated for Summer 2022.
