SamTrans to hold public meeting on possible express bus service

in Featured/Headline/Infrastructure and

SamTrans is inviting the public to weigh in on the study of possibly adding express bus service through San Mateo County, with some service potentially traveling in express lanes along Highway 101 that are expected to open in 2021.

The meeting is scheduled to occur from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13, at SamTrans, 1250 San Carlos Ave. in San Carlos.

The SamTrans US-101 Express Bus Feasibility Study aims to speed up bus service through Santa Clara, San Mateo and San Francisco counties with limited stops and use of northbound and southbound high occupancy vehicle lanes. The study is funded by grants from Caltrans and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

Below is a draft of express routes being considered.
