The “Skyline College Express” launched August 17, 2016, just in time for the start of fall semester classes. The shuttle runs every hour from 7:25 a.m. to 6:44 p.m., Mondays to Fridays.
The first day of shuttle service saw very high ridership to campus and a second stand‐by shuttle was employed to account for excess rider demand. Ridership from Daly City BART to campus saw 36 riders on the first set of shuttles at 7:55 a.m., then 45 riders at 8:25 a.m., and a peak of 53 riders on the 9:25 a.m. shuttles.
Understandably, the ridership on the return leg back to Daly City BART started out slow in the morning, with 1 rider at 8:25 am and an average of 13 riders during the window of departures from 9am‐12pm. However, in the early afternoon, shuttle ridership on the return journey back to the Daly City BART Station began reaching full capacity with full shuttle loads arriving at 1:44pm and 2:44pm. Shuttle ridership and demand will be closely followed in the coming days as latest data becomes available.
