Project Overview

What is Reimagine SamTrans?

SamTrans passengers at night Reimagine SamTrans will evaluate each SamTrans bus route, as well as the entire bus system, in light of changing travel patterns and needs. We will look at every element of the SamTrans system, from customer experience, to route design, to how often the buses run, to efficient and effective operations practices, and more.

In summer 2019, the San Mateo County Transit District launched Reimagine SamTrans, a comprehensive operational analysis (COA) of the SamTrans bus system. Over the course of 18 months, Reimagine SamTrans will evaluate its current service through three phases. The goals of Reimagine SamTrans are to:
