SamTrans Launches New Site for Peninsula Events & Activities

With so many places to go and activities to do in the Peninsula, SamTrans is now offering residents and visitors in San Mateo County a range of mobility options in order to better shop, dine and play.

Today, SamTrans debuts its new Go SamTrans site featuring local attractions and places to shop and dine.  Users can easily connect with the bus route that will get them to events, such as taking Route 292 to the San Francisco Chinese New Year’s Parade on February 11 or taking Route 17 to the 27th Annual Pacific Coast Dream Machines event in Half Moon Bay in April.

Go SamTrans also directs visitors to farmers’ markets, local museums and theaters, and shopping destinations throughout the Peninsula and The City, providing a great resource for passengers looking for culture and entertainment.

Previously, SamTrans issued a quarterly print brochure called the Transit Fun Guide that listed upcoming attractions. Go SamTrans replaces that publication. Visit go.samtrans.com to see what’s happening around the Bay Area.

The Bay Area is a vibrant cultural center with a wide range of attractions and activities, but this wide array of things to do come at the cost of traffic congestion and difficult parking. With Go SamTrans, local families have another tool to discover all these wonderful events that are only a convenient SamTrans ride away.
