New M1-Crosstown Shuttle service expands coverage

Posted on October 13, 2020 at 5:49 pm by Clay Curtin

Beginning Monday, November 9, 2020, there will be some changes to the free M2-Belle Haven community shuttle. The shuttle will be renamed into M1-Crosstown shuttle, which will continue to cover the existing M2-Belle Haven route, but will extend into Palo Alto and Sharon Heights. The shuttle will run from about 8 a.m to 6 p.m. Current schedules times may change, so please check the new M1-Crosstown Shuttle schedule to see how you may be affected.

The new M1-Crosstown will continue serving destinations such as the Belle Haven neighborhood, Menlo Medical Clinic, Menlo Park Library, downtown Menlo Park, the Caltrain station and Little House. New destinations include Palo Alto Caltrain (with connections to other free shuttles), Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Stanford Shopping Center, Stanford Medical Center and Sharon Heights.

For Sharon Heights residents, this shuttle restores service which was lost in September 2018 when the M1-Menlo Midday shuttle was suspended. Although this service is slightly different for Sharon Heights residents than the previous shuttle, it offers better connections to more destinations throughout Menlo Park.

The City of Menlo Park hopes all residents and their loved ones are doing well during these times. Please rest assured that your health is taken into the utmost consideration when operating these shuttles. To protect against COVID-19, the driver wears a mask, vehicles are thoroughly cleaned, riders are required to wear masks, social distancing is kept, and there are capacity limits on the shuttles to prevent crowding. The health and safety of residents and their loved ones is a priority while being able to mobilize residents to live everyday life.

For those who may not be within walking distance or have limited mobility, he City of Menlo Park also has the Shoppers’ Shuttle. This free shuttle picks you up at your house and takes you directly to your destination, before picking you up for the return trip home.
