Understanding our System and Service Design Process (Phase 1)
Reimagine SamTrans will require about 18 months to complete, beginning in Fall 2019 and ending in Summer 2021. In the first phase of work, SamTrans will analyze the current state of the SamTrans bus system and conduct widespread outreach and market research on what riders and potential riders want out public transportation. All feedback received in Phase 1 will inform future phases of the project.
Finding Solutions and Hearing from You (Phase 2)
During the second phase, SamTrans will develop up to three alternative route designs for each route in the system. These design proposals will range from minor to major changes. Some routes may not have major changes. Public outreach will be conducted to receive input on alternatives for each route and how those routes fit together into one bus system.
Consolidating Ideas and Positioning for Success (Phase 3)
In Phase 3, SamTrans will consolidate feedback received in Phase 2 and use best practices in bus system design to develop one preferred bus system, ensuring all routes complement each other and produce a cohesive system. SamTrans will conduct outreach on a single proposed bus system and refine and develop a plan for implementing that system.
