San Mateo County to discontinue parks shuttle service due to declining ridership

After two years running, the San Mateo County Parks Department will end its Park Shuttle service connecting Edgewood County Park & Natural Preserve in Redwood City and Wunderlich County Park in Woodside, citing declining ridership. The final day of service will be Sunday, Aug. 26.

The weekend shuttle service was launched to make it easier for residents to visit county parks, as few of the 22 parks in the system are accessible by public transit. Shuttle begins at 9 a.m. every weekend day from East Palo Alto and Menlo Park and makes stops in Redwood City, including the transit center and Fair Oaks Community Center.

“After two years of service and declining ridership, the Department decided not to reapply for grant funding and to discontinue the service,” according to a statement.
