The City of San Mateo has launched the Connect San Mateo program, a partnership with Commute.org and Samtrans, to offer residents an interactive and user-friendly website for commuters to explore the myriad alternative transportation options available within the City of San Mateo. The goal of the program is to increase awareness of mobility options and increase the use of alternatives to single-occupancy vehicles, reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions.
