SamTrans bus service on the Coastside includes local routes in communities spanning Pacifica to Pescadero. Multiple routes from Pacifica connect to BART stations, while the Route 294 connects the mid-Coast to Caltrain and bay-side destinations like College of San Mateo and the Hillsdale Shopping Center.
Time and frequency:
- Improved service seven days a week on Route 110 and on weekdays on Route 118
- Improved service on Route 17 on weekends, doubling today’s service
- Improved midday service on Route 294
- Extension of Route 110 into the Linda Mar neighborhood of Pacifica. FLX Pacifica would be eliminated and covered by Route 110.
- Shortening of Route 112 at Sharp Park in Pacifica
- Direct service on Route 118 to/from Daly City BART only
- Fewer deviations on Route 17
- Removal of direct service to College of San Mateo and San Mateo Medical Center on Route 294 due to low ridership
- Introduction of a new supplemental on-demand service in the Half Moon Bay area. This service would allow people to call or use a mobile app to schedule a ride from where they are to where they want to go within the defined zone and would connect to Routes 17 and 294.
