SamTrans provides fixed-route bus service throughout San Mateo County and into parts of San Francisco and Palo Alto. All SamTrans buses are equipped with ramps that can be used by people who use mobility devices and/or have difficulty climbing steps. The entry to each bus also has grab rails and a kneeling feature that lowers the front end so the first step is easier to reach. Every bus has two wheelchair spaces—the operator will secure the device in place, and offer a lap and shoulder belt for added safety. All SamTrans buses are equipped with an automated system that makes amplified announcements of major transfer points, intersections and destinations. An electronic message board inside the bus simultaneously displays the same information. External loudspeakers announce the route number and destination of the bus at all bus stops. Priority seating for seniors and people with disabilities is available at the front of the bus. Seniors and people with disabilities with approved ID may save by paying the Eligible Discount fare.
Free travel training is available for people with disabilities who want to learn to ride SamTrans buses or Caltrain. For more information about travel training, call 650-508-6202.
