Daly City residents will soon have a new shuttle to transport them from the eastern side of the city to the western side for vital community services.

Funding for the shuttle was unanimously approved last week by the Daly City City Council.

According to Mayor David Canepa, the free shuttle, set to launch Jan. 6, will provide a vital connection to supermarkets, health facilities and neighborhood centers in the city’s Bayshore community.

Funding for the shuttle comes from the San Mateo County Transportation Authority and from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission through the City/County Association of Governments in San Mateo County.

“In partnership with our local residents, Daly City and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority collaborated to create a critically needed transportation link, bringing neighborhoods that were once isolated closer to medical and nutrition services, shopping, jobs and connections to other nearby transit alternatives,” Canepa said. “I’m extremely proud of the effort that led to this new community resource.”

The route was developed through several planning meetings, Canepa said.

A ribbon cutting is scheduled at 11 a.m. Jan. 6 at the Bayshore Community Center, 450 Martin St., Daly City, to launch the shuttle and commemorate the community-based planning process that led to its inceptionBay Area NewsDaly CityPeninsulaSamTransSan Mateo County Transportation Authority
