Shuttle Updates
Please click HERE for up-to-date Commute.org shuttle schedules and click HERE for SamTrans & Caltrain shuttle schedules.

There are revised schedules to many of our routes to align with the current Caltrain and BART services. Some routes, including Norfolk and those serving the SSF Ferry Terminal, have been temporarily suspended.

Commute.org reminds passengers to follow these safety measures when riding:
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times, including onboard and at shuttle stops. This requirement will be strictly enforced
  • Practice physical distancing when choosing a seat on the shuttle
  • Wash or sanitize your hands before and after
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • Stay home if you feel sick
Hand sanitizers are installed on all vehicles, and at present, ridership allows for ample social distancing.
