The San Mateo County Transit District operates the SamTrans bus service and Redi-Wheels ParaTransit services. It also administers the CalTrain rail service, a shuttle program, and has partnered with BART to develop and operate the BART-SFO extension to the Millbrae BART station.
The public transportation lawyers of Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger have successfully represented SamTrans bus passengers, CalTrain rail passengers, ParaTransit passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians, who have been injured through the negligence of SamTrans employees. SamTrans buses are often involved in accidents along the Peninsula. Our attorneys understand how to enforce SamTrans’ internal safety regulations.
Filing Your SamTrans Injury Lawsuit
Over the last 27 years the transit district has grown dramatically. It has expanded service and recently celebrated 30 years as a transit agency. As with other transit agencies, if you are injured on, or by, a SamTrans operated vehicle, you are required to file a government tort claim with SamTrans governing board before any lawsuit can move forward.
The Board of Directors consists of nine appointed members from various leadership positions within the community: two are from the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, one is an appointed expert appointed by the Board of Supervisors; three are City Council persons from different judicial districts in San Mateo County; and three are public members.
The SamTrans Board meets the second Wednesday of each month. The Board’s secretary is located at 1250 San Carlos Avenue, San Carlos, CA 94070.
