Marin Transit is making a variety of improvements to local bus service throughout the county. These improvements include introducing smaller Community Shuttle buses in neighborhoods in Tiburon and Novato; expanding existing Community Shuttle routes to provide more direct connections between San Rafael and Novato; providing service to the new San Rafael Target store upon opening; providing a direct connection between Sausalito and Mill Valley; and providing more frequent and later evening service on select routes.

In total, 15,000 hours of service is being added, and most areas will experience an increase in service levels.

  • Replace Route 51 in Novato with Route 251
  • Extend Route 257 and Route 259 into Novato
  • Replace Route 19 in Tiburon with Route 219
  • Extend Route 23 east of the San Rafael Transit Center (SRTC) to serve the Canal and Target
  • Replace Route 29 weekend service with Route 28
  • Restructure Route 17 and Route 22 in South County

More detailed information about the service changes is presented below.
