SamTrans is exploring new options to improve transit service for those that live, work, or play along the El Camino Real corridor. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) can provide faster bus service that could reduce travel times by up to 30 percent, over local bus routes by employing skip stop service, traffic signal improvements, and other operational enhancements. This type of “development-oriented transit” would expand transportation options and complement the GBI’s efforts.
SamTrans has kicked-off a BRT Phasing Plan Study that will identify the optimal features for a BRT type service for the 26-mile El Camino Real corridor from Daly City in the north to the Palo Alto Transit Center in the south. The study will look at what low-cost operational improvements can provide faster bus service in the next 2-3 years while also analyzing the value of more capital-intensive improvements like dedicated bus lanes and improved transit stations in the long-term.This feasibility study will involve substantial outreach to the public and private sector, including the GBI Task Force and local governments along the corridor, as well as public workshops in the fall of 2013.
