North County

Daly City, Colma, Brisbane, South San Francisco, San Bruno, Millbrae

SamTrans bus service in the North County area includes local routes in the cities of Daly City, Colma, Brisbane, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae. Many routes serve BART and/or Caltrain stations and nearby communities and destinations like Skyline College, San Francisco International Airport, Pacifica, the Stonestown/SF State area, and downtown San Francisco.

North County System Alternative 1 Route Map

Alternative 1 Key Changes

Five routes would run every 15-minutes or better seven days a week, which improves accessibility and useability. This includes Route ECR between Millbrae and Daly City, Route 130 between SSF BART and Oyster Point, Route 120, Route 141 between San Bruno BART and South San Francisco, and Route 292 between Millbrae and Bayshore.

Route 121 between Colma BART and SF State University would operate every 15 minutes on weekdays, and a new limited stop ECR Rapid would connect San Bruno BART and Redwood City.

Duplicative service by multiple SamTrans routes would be reduced in Daly City between Daly City BART and Mission Hills, on Hillside Boulevard, and between Serramonte and Colma BART. SamTrans service is reduced on routes that duplicate BART or SF Muni, including trips into downtown San Francisco. In addition, small deviations into neighborhoods are reduced to make travel time faster and improve reliability.

North County System Alternative 2 Route Map

Alternative 2 Key Changes

Three limited stop routes would be implemented to make trips faster and improve reliability, including Route ECR, Route 292 in San Francisco only, and a new route connecting Daly City, Serramonte Center, and Skyline College.

Two routes would serve the growing employment areas in Oyster Point.

Duplicative service by multiple SamTrans routes would be reduced in Daly City between Daly City BART and Mission Hills and between Colma BART and Serramonte. In addition, small deviations into neighborhoods are reduced to make travel time faster and improve reliability.

North County System Alternative 3 Route Map

Alternative 3 Key Changes

Portions of Routes 120 and 130 would be consolidated and operate every 15 minutes, seven days a week. This would improve access from Daly City and South San Francisco to SFO Airport.

A restructured Route 140 would improve access to education and jobs by directly connecting South San Francisco, Skyline College, and Oyster Point.

A modified Route 292 would stop at Millbrae BART and operate as limited stop service in San Francisco.

A new on-demand service in Millbrae would be implemented. A ride on a smaller vehicle, which could be reserved with a phone call or via an app, would provide service anywhere within the zone.

Duplicative service by multiple SamTrans routes would be reduced in Daly City between Daly City BART and Mission Hills.

Route 110 | Linda Mar Park & Ride - Daly City BART

Existing Service

Route 110 has average productivity. Ridership is focused to Daly City in the morning and from Daly City in the afternoon. There are some school-day-only trips woven into the schedule. Public input included requests for earlier service and more frequent service on weekends.

Possible Changes

Route 110 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

To improve travel times for the majority of riders, this option removes the route deviation from Skyline Drive to serve Longview Drive. Affected riders would need to walk up to five minutes to a stop on Skyline Drive.
Route 110 would operate more often, every 30 minutes, during the midday on weekdays and weekends.
All Route 110 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 10.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

This alternative is the same as Alternative 1, except that it would run as often as the existing service, every 60 minutes during the midday on weekdays and weekends.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

Route 110 would operate more often, every 30 minutes, during the midday on weekdays and weekends.
All Route 110 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 10.

Route 112 | Linda Mar Park & Ride - Colma BART

Existing Service

Route 112 is a below average route in terms of ridership. It serves a small, unique market that mostly overlaps with other routes. Public input included requests for better connectivity to other routes and earlier service.

Possible Changes

Route 112 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This option includes several recommendations to reduce duplication with other routes and to improve frequency.
In this option, Route 112 would end at Serramonte. Routes 120, 121, and 130 would continue to provide service between Colma BART and Serramonte. Likewise, the southern end of the route would be Sharp Park and the route would not continue to Linda Mar. Route 110, which would have improved midday and weekend service, would continue to serve Linda Mar and Sharp Park.
Frequency on Route 112 would increase to every 30 minutes, seven days a week.
All Route 112 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 12.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

To reduce duplicating service with Route 110, Route 112 would end at Sharp Park and would not continue to Linda Mar. Route 110 would continue to serve the Linda Mar Park-and-Ride and Sharp Park.
This recommendation is made in conjunction with operating more frequent service during rush hours on Route 118 connecting Linda Mar to BART.
All Route 112 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 12.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

This option discontinues Route 112 due to lower ridership and duplicating service on many other routes. Most existing passengers would still have access to Routes 110, 121, or 130, but would have to transfer to reach their destination. Existing riders on Gateway Drive would need to walk about five to ten minutes to a bus stop on Skyline Drive (Route 110) or Hickey Boulevard (Route 121).

Route 118 | Linda Mar Park & Ride - Daly City BART

Existing Service

Route 118 provides peak directional limited stop service from Linda Mar and Pacifica to two BART stations. Public input included requests for earlier service and better schedule coordination with other routes.

Possible Changes

Route 118 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

In this option, Route 118 would end at the Colma BART station and no longer serve Daly City. Route ECR and BART would continue to provide service between Daly City and Colma BART. This recommendation would improve the reliability of Route 118, as it is frequently delayed on the streets between the two BART stations.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

To improve reliability and provide a faster trip to Daly City, Route 118 would no longer serve the Colma BART Station. Passengers wishing to travel to Colma could transfer to BART or Route ECR.
Route 118 would have improved frequency with trips every 30 minutes during the morning and evening peak periods.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

The existing route would continue to operate with no changes.

Route 120 | Brunswick/Templeton (Daly City) – Colma BART

Existing Service

Route 120 is one of SamTrans’ highest ridership and most productive routes. It operates every 15 minutes or better seven days a week. Public input suggested that on-time performance could be improved on Route 120.

Possible Changes

Route 120 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This option shortens Route 120 to end at Daly City BART removing service to the South Hill area to avoid duplicating service with Routes 121, ECR, and Muni 14R. Routes 121, ECR, and Muni 14R would continue to serve all stops that would be affected by shortening Route 120.
Route 120 would operate more frequently, running every 10 minutes between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. In addition, frequency would be increased to every 15 minutes all day on weekdays and weekends. Evening service levels more than double seven days a week.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

Route 120 would be extended to Mission Hills Park, the existing turnaround for Route 121, improving access to this residential neighborhood. Service frequency and hours of service would not change. A corresponding recommendation would be to shorten Route 121 to end at Daly City BART.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

This option shortens Route 120 to end at Daly City BART and stops serving South Hill to avoid duplicating service with Routes 121, ECR, and Muni 14R. Routes 121, ECR, and Muni 14R would continue to serve all stops affected by shortening Route 120.
This option also combines Routes 120 and 130 at Serramonte Center, so that more Daly City residents have a direct connection to South San Francisco, Oyster Point, and the SFO Airport. From Serramonte, Route 120 would follow the existing Route 130 alignment until Linden Avenue, where it would extend to the SFO Airtrain station via Grand Avenue, S. Airport Boulevard, and McDowell Road.
Route 120 would no longer connect Colma BART and Serramonte, but this connection would be provided by multiple other routes, including Routes 121, 122, and the northern portion of Route 130.

Route 121 | Pope/Bellevue (Daly City) – Skyline College

Existing Service

Route 121 is a productive route but is indirect for any riders using it to access Skyline College. Portions of the route also overlap with two shuttle routes serving the area: the Seton Medical Center Shuttle and the Skyline College Shuttle. Trips to Skyline College take approximately 30 minutes longer on Route 121 than on the shuttle. Public input suggested on-time performance was an issue. There were also requests for earlier and more frequent service on weekends.

Possible Changes

Route 121 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

Multiple recommendations are made to reduce duplication of service with other routes and to make Route 121 more direct. Route 121 would no longer serve Colma BART Station, but Route 130 and Route 122 would still provide a connection for Daly City residents to Colma BART. Travel times between Daly City BART and Seton Medical Center and Skyline College are shorter as a result of this change. South of Serramonte, Route 121 would run on Callan Boulevard instead of Gellert Boulevard. Route 122 would continue to serve Gellert Boulevard. This option would also discontinue the peak hour extension to South Hill Boulevard and Alta Vista Way due to low ridership.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

Multiple recommendations are made to reduce duplication of service with other routes and to make Route 121 more direct. Route 121 would no longer serve Colma BART Station, but Route 130 and Route 122 would still provide a connection for Daly City residents to Colma BART. Travel times between Daly City BART and Seton Medical Center and Skyline College are shorter as a result of this change. South of Serramonte, Route 121 would run on Callan Boulevard instead of Gellert Boulevard. Route 122 would continue to serve Gellert Boulevard. This option would also discontinue the peak hour extension to South Hill Boulevard and Alta Vista Way due to low ridership.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

This option discontinues Route 121’s peak hour extension to South Hill Boulevard and Alta Vista Way due to low ridership. The San Fernando Way deviation would also be discontinued to make the route more direct. Route 122 would continue to provide direct access to Seaton Medical Center. Weekend frequency would be improved to every 30 minutes all day.

Route 122 | SSF BART – Stonestown/SF State

Existing Service

Route 122 is a long route that serves many areas with average ridership. There were requests for earlier and more frequent service on weekends.

Possible Changes

Route 122 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

To improve on-time performance and improve frequency on the northern half of the route with stronger ridership, Route 122 would be split at the Colma BART Station. The northern segment would operate every 15 minutes during the daytime on weekdays. The southern segment would operate as a new Route 125 with service every 30 minutes all day, seven days a week. Every existing Route 122 stop would continue to have service.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

The existing route would continue to operate with no changes.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

The existing route would continue to operate with no changes.

Route 130 | Daly City BART – Airport/Linden (South San Francisco)

Existing Service

Route 130 is a very productive route with strong all-day ridership. Public input suggested that transfers between BART and buses could be improved and that later evening service seven days a week was desired.

Possible Changes

Route 130 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

Route 130 would be extended to Oyster Point to improve access to jobs, but only run as far north as the neighborhood east of Hillsdale Boulevard after serving the Colma BART Station. The portion of the existing Route 130 between E. Market Street and Daly City BART would have more frequent all-day service from Route ECR but require a short walk to Mission Street.
Route 130 would operate more frequently on the weekends, running every 15 minutes during the daytime, seven days a week, and would operate until midnight on weekends.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

On weekdays, Route 130 would extend to Oyster Point via Grand Avenue and DNA Way, providing more direct access to the South San Francisco Caltrain Station in addition to jobs at Oyster Point. On weekends, Route 130 would end at the South San Francisco Caltrain station. Route 130 would no longer serve Linden Avenue, but Route 141 would continue to serve this area. Route 130 would operate until midnight on weekends.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

In this alternative, Route 130 would operate between Daly City BART and Serramonte only. Route 120 would continue to serve all existing Route 130 stops between Serramonte and Linden Avenue with more frequent and later service, and extend to Oyster Point and SFO Airport. Existing Route 130 riders on Linden Avenue would continue to have access to service on Route 141. Route 130 would operate until 10 p.m. on weekends.

Route 140 | SFO AirTrain – Manor/Palmetto (Daly City)

Existing Service

Route 140 is a below average route in terms of ridership and takes an indirect route to serve multiple destinations. There are also some school-day-only trips woven into the schedule. Public input included requests for more frequent service and later weekend evening service.

Possible Changes

Route 140 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

Between Skyline College and San Bruno BART, Route 140 would be replaced with an extended Route 121. This would increase weekday frequency on this segment to every 30 minutes. Route 140 would also be streamlined to no longer serve San Bruno Drive or Rollingwood Drive, which would improve travel times between San Bruno BART and Skyline College by more than six minutes. Existing riders on Sequoia Avenue and Rollingwood Drive would need to walk up to 10 minutes to a stop on Sneath Lane for service. Affected customers on Cherry Avenue would need to walk up to 10 minutes for service.
The extended Route 121 would not serve Pacific Manor or SFO Airport. Existing customers on Monterrey Road and Hickey Boulevard would need to walk up to 10 minutes to either Oceana Boulevard (Routes 110/112) or Inverness Drive (Route 121) for service. BART and a new Route EPX would provide a connection between SFO airport terminals and San Bruno BART. The extended Route 121 would operate later than Route 140 seven days a week. All Route 140 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 40.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

Between San Bruno BART and Skyline College, Route 140 would no longer serve San Bruno Avenue. This would improve reliability and travel times to Skyline College. Riders on Cherry Avenue and San Bruno Avenue would continue to have rush hour service on the existing Bay Hill Shuttle. All Route 140 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 40.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

Route 140 would no longer serve San Bruno Avenue. This improves reliability and travel times to Skyline College. Riders on Cherry Avenue and San Bruno Avenue would continue to have rush hour service on the existing Bay Hill Shuttle. Route 140 would extend into South San Francisco and Oyster Point to improve access to education and jobs. This extension would replace Route 141 and remove the low-ridership Route 140 segment between San Bruno BART and SFO Airtrain. BART and Route 398 would continue to provide a connection between San Bruno BART and SFO. Route 140’s frequency would be improved to every 30 minutes during midday on weekdays and on weekends, and the route would operate until 11 p.m. seven days a week. All Route 140 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 40.

Route 141 | Airport/Linden (South San Francisco) – Shelter Creek (San Bruno)

Existing Service

Route 141 is slightly below average in terms of ridership and productivity. Ridership is high between San Bruno BART Station and South San Francisco. Multiple school trips are added on school days. Public input included requests for later evening service and more frequent weekend service.

Possible Changes

Route 141 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This option discontinues the segment of the route between San Bruno BART and Shelter Creek Drive due to low ridership. The existing Bay Hill Shuttle provides weekday rush hour service on a portion of the route that would be discontinued and could possibly serve additional areas in the future, such as Shelter Creek.
In this alternative, Route 141 would operate more frequently, every 15 minutes, seven days a week on the segment between San Bruno BART and South San Francisco. The route would also operate later service, running until 10:30 p.m. seven days a week.
All Route 141 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 41.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

This alternative is the same as Alternative 1, except service would only run every 30 minutes, seven days a week, and it would run until 10:00 p.m. seven days a week.
All Route 141 trips that operate only on school days would be renamed as Route 41.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

In conjunction with extending Route 140 to South San Francisco and Oyster Point, Route 141 would be discontinued. All existing Route 141 stops between South San Francisco and San Bruno BART would continue to have service on the new Route 140.
The existing Bay Hill Shuttle provides weekday rush hour service on a portion of the existing Route 141 and could possibly serve additional areas in the future, such as Shelter Creek.

Route 292/293 | San Francisco – SFO - Hillsdale Mall

Existing Service

Route 292 has average ridership but is a very long route, making on-time performance a challenge. Public input suggested that on-time performance and speed (due to too many stops) were issues. There were also requests for more frequent service.

Possible Changes

Route 292 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This option makes two recommendations to improve reliability and frequency. Route 292 would be extended to serve the Millbrae BART station, and would split into two different routes at Millbrae. A new Route 293 between Hillsdale and Millbrae would serve the same stops, same frequency, and same service span as the existing Route 292.
Route 292 would no longer travel to downtown San Francisco, but instead end at Bayshore. Muni Routes 8, 9, 9R, and T would continue to provide frequent and direct connections to downtown San Francisco and the Mission from the Bayshore connection point.
With a shortened route, frequency on the Route 292 could be improved to operate every 15 minutes during peak and midday periods, seven days a week. This would improve access to SFO, BART and other destinations for residents and workers along the route. Route 292 would also replace Route SFO with more frequent service.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

In this option, Route 292 would continue to operate in San Francisco but with fewer stops spaced approximately every half mile. This would reduce travel times for Route 292 riders. Frequency and hours of service would not change.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

This option extends Route 292 to serve the Millbrae BART station. This would improve regional access to jobs, especially around SFO airport.
In San Francisco, Route 292 would operate as a limited-stop service with stops approximately every half mile. Frequency and hours of service would not change.

Route 397 | Palo Alto Transit Center - Downtown San Francisco

No changes are proposed to this route.

Route 398 | San Francisco – SFO – Redwood City Transit Center

Existing Service

Route 398 is a low ridership route, particularly north of the San Bruno BART Station. Route 398 duplicates service provided by Route ECR, Caltrain, and BART. Travel times from South County to downtown San Francisco are long and uncompetitive with driving. The public’s primary feedback was to improve on-time performance and operate more frequently.

Possible Changes

Route 398 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This option discontinues Route 398 due to low ridership.
All riders would continue to have options on Route ECR, Caltrain, and BART. Fares for these longer-distance trips may be higher.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

This alternative is the same as Alternative 1.
All riders would continue to have options on Route ECR, Caltrain, and BART. Fares for these longer-distance trips may be higher. A new SamTrans express route from San Mateo, called the SMX, could provide bus service into downtown San Francisco for Route 398 riders.

Alt 3: Retain geographic coverage

This option redesigns Route 398 to more quickly connect South County with SFO and BART, without an extension to San Francisco. On El Camino Real, Route 398 would operate as a limited stop service, with stops approximately every half mile.
Route 398 would end at San Bruno BART Station. All riders in San Francisco would continue to have options to ride Caltrain or BART. Fares for these rail trips may be higher.

SFO | Millbrae Transit Center - San Francisco International Airport SFO

Existing Service

Route SFO is a short, low ridership route providing service from the Millbrae Transit Center to SFO Airport. This route duplicates BART service.

Possible Changes

Route 124 | Daly City BART – Serramonte – Skyline College (NEW!)

Existing Service

Skyline College runs a free shuttle service between Daly City BART and Skyline College. The shuttle runs hourly between 7:30 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. on weekdays when school is in session. SamTrans service to Skyline College is available on Routes 121 and 140. However, trips to Skyline College take approximately 30 minutes longer on Route 121 than on the shuttle. Riders have indicated the trip to Skyline College from Daly City takes too long on Route 121.

Possible Changes

Route 124 Alternatives

Alt 1: Direct, high-frequency service within the county

This new route would not exist in this alternative.

Alt 2: Improved connections to rail and the region

In this option, a new Route 124 would connect Daly City BART, Serramonte, and Skyline College every 30 minutes on weekdays. Route 124 would have limited stops between Daly City and Serramonte and would provide a very fast connection between these two major destinations and a faster ride to Skyline College. Route 124 would replace Route 121 service between the Serramonte Center and Skyline College.
