SamTrans is planning a public hearing and meetings to take comments from community members regarding proposed discontinuation of SamTrans participation in the BART Plus Ticket program and proposed elimination of three underutilized bus schedules.
The proposed changes would go into effect in January 2013.
Proposals to be considered include:
- Discontinuance of participation in the BART Plus Ticket program, which allows holders unlimited rides on a number of bus services.
- Elimination of a single Route 36 schedule departing Dundee & Wicklow drives in South San Francisco at 8:10 a.m.
- Elimination of a single Route 36 schedule departing Evergreen Avenue & Mission Street in Daly City at 3:22 p.m.
- Elimination of a single Route 72 schedule departing Selby Lane & Serrano Drive in Atherton at 3:30 p.m.
Remaining runs on routes 36 and 72 will continue to operate, customers should check the schedule for alternate times.
SamTrans will hold two public meetings to present the proposals and receive comments in advance of the public hearing. The meetings will take place:
- Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 6 p.m., at the War Memorial Community Center, 6655 Mission St., Daly City
