SamTrans seeking community feedback on transformative study - Reimagine SamTrans

Posted on November 18, 2019 at 4:02 pm by Peter Ibrahim

SamTrans recently launched Reimagine SamTrans, a transformative study that will examine each route in the SamTrans bus system in light of changing travel patterns. Reimagine SamTrans will consider everything from customer experience, to route design, to how often buses run, to efficient and effective operations and practice. And they need your feedback on this critical effort!

Whether you take the bus, drive, walk, bike or use any other modes of transportation, you are welcome to share your feedback by taking their survey, which closes December 31, 2019.

Take the Reimagine SamTrans survey and share your vision for a future SamTrans network.

You can also share your feedback in-person with SamTrans staff out in the field at bus stops, farmers markets and community meetings. Visit for a full list of events and more information about the project.

Get around town using the City’s free shuttle system

Posted on November 18, 2019 at 4:00 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Did you know that the City of Menlo Park operates four FREE, publicly accessible shuttle lines? These shuttle lines are a great way to get around town to run errands, visit friends, get to home or work from Caltrain, and/or shop just in time for the holidays! All these shuttles are open to everyone, have a rack for two bicycles and are wheelchair-accessible. 

The M2-Belle Haven is a service connecting the Belle Haven neighborhood with the Library, Burgess Park, Downtown, Safeway and the Little House Activity Center. 

For commuters, the M3-Marsh Road and M4-Willow Road shuttles run from Menlo Park Caltrain to get you to your job! The M3-Marsh Road shuttle takes you to the businesses parks around Bohannon Drive and the Bayfront area, while the M4-Willow Road shuttle takes you to business parks near O’Brien Drive. 

For those not near a shuttle or may need a little more assistance, there is the Shoppers’ Shuttle. This is a FREE door-to-door shuttle that takes you from your house to destinations in Redwood City on Tuesdays, and around Menlo Park on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Reservations are required for the Shoppers’ Shuttle, at least one day in advance before your trip. 

For more information and schedules, please visit the City of Menlo Park’s shuttle website at or call 650-330-6770. You may also reach our shuttle provider, MV Transportation, at 650-692-1003.
