San Mateo Bus Bridge
Effective Feb. 27, 2016
Caltrain will operate a bus bridge between its Hayward Park and Burlingame stations on February 27, 2016 to accommodate the replacement of the 112-year old Santa Inez rail bridge.
Customers traveling through San Mateo that Saturday will be required to board buses between the Hayward Park and Burlingame stations.
The use of buses to connect the trains will require Caltrain to alter its train schedule for the entire day. Northbound trains will operate on the current Saturday schedule until they reach Hayward Park, and southbound trains will use the current schedule until they reach Burlingame.
The bus bridge will be provided by SamTrans so Caltrain customers should look for the red, white and blue buses when they get to the station. Ambassadors also will be on hand to assist customers. Note: There will be limited capacity for luggage and bikes on the buses.
Caltrain will have ambassadors at the impacted stations to assist and direct customers to the bus bridge.
Caltrain will undertake this same process for the remaining two rail bridges to be replaced, tentatively scheduled for late February and mid April 2016.
