Memorial Day is Monday, May 27, and Caltrain and SamTrans are ready to get riders where they need to go.
Both agencies will operate on a standard holiday schedule, which is the same as a Sunday schedule. All non-school buses and 24 trains will be operating over the course of the day. Caltrain will also offer its standard shuttle service to and from the San Jose Diridon Station and Tamien Station.
The administrative offices of the San Mateo County Transit District, which manages Caltrain and SamTrans at 1250 San Carlos Ave. in San Carlos, will be closed on Memorial Day.
About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad has provided the community with more than 150 years of continuous passenger service. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
About SamTrans: SamTrans operates 70 routes throughout San Mateo County. Funded in part by a half-cent sales tax, the San Mateo County Transit District also provides administrative support for Caltrain and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority. SamTrans has provided bus service to San Mateo County customers since 1976.
