IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The Linda Mar Park & Ride is Complete
Construction on the Linda Mar Park & Ride lot in Pacifica is now complete. The lot temporarily closed in October 2018 for routine repaving and re-striping work, as well as making ADA parking stalls level with the bus shelter on site. The lot is located on the north side of Linda Mar Boulevard, near the intersection of State Route 1 and across the street from the Linda Mar Shopping Center. The project was one of many that have been funded by Senate Bill 1, California’s Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: The temporary bus stop put in place to accommodate the construction is no longer active and SamTrans bus service for the Linda Mar Park and Ride has been moved back to the original bus stop location. This bus stop serves the following routes: FLXP, 14, 17, 19, 110, 112, and 118.
