Free SamTrans community shuttle to begin service in Bayshore

Free community shuttle bus service is scheduled to launch Monday in Daly City’s Bayshore neighborhood.

Officials from the San Mateo County Transportation Authority and Daly City, along with residents, will celebrate the start of the free service during a ceremony at the Bayshore Community Center.

The new SamTrans shuttle will provide vital east-west connections to grocery stores, pharmacies, health clinics, hospitals, shopping malls and other areas that have been somewhat inaccessible for residents of the eastern Bayshore neighborhood, officials said. The shuttle will be operated in partnership with the Transportation Authority.

Funding for the shuttle came from the Transportation Authority and from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission through the City/County Association of Governments of 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 services,” said Daly City Mayor and Transportation Authority Director David Canepa. “I’m extremely proud of the effort that led to this new community resource.”

The Bayshore Community Center is at 450 Martin St. in Daly City. The launch event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Monday.Bay Area NewsBayshore neighborhoodDaly CityPeninsulaSan Mateo County Transportation Authority
