TRANSIT PLANNING: PROJECTS IN PROGRESS

Countywide School Transportation Study

Marin Transit is collaborating with the Transportation Authority of Marin and the Marin County Office of Education to assess countywide school transportation needs and services and options for future improvements. The assessment will focus on non-mandated home to school transportation provided primarily by public and private transit and the County’s Safe Routes to School programs.

Local Bus Stop Revitalization – 2014

The purpose of this project is to improve accessibility, safety and amenities of local bus stops in Marin County. 26 bus stops have been identified for improvement and the consultant team has completed 30% designs for each location. Priority was given to stops that serve only local transit routes operated by Marin Transit. Watch for improvements at the stops listed below:

New Bus Stop Signage – 2013

Local Bus Stop Sign Shared Bus Stop Sign Shared Bus Stop Sign

 

Project Overview

Marin Transit, in partnership with Golden Gate Transit, is updating the signage at all Marin County bus stops. The new signage will include route number, destination, and operational information for local routes. Each sign will have the stop ID so that customers can call 511 to obtain schedule information.
Look out for the new signs being installed in a bus stop near you!

 

This project is funded through Marin Transit's Federal State of Good Repair Grant and California Proposition 1B.

 

Redwood and Grant Transit Improvement Project (RGTIP Downtown Novato) Planning and Design currently underway

Marin Transit is in the initial phases of leading the development of a new design for the transit facility located at Redwood and Grant in downtown Novato. The development of alternative designs for the Redwood and Grant Transit Improvement Project (RGTIP) is a coordinated effort between Marin Transit, Golden Gate Transit, and the City of Novato.

This project is jointly funded by the County of Marin, the Transportation Authority for Marin, and Marin Transit.

 

New Bus Stop Shelters, Benches, and Accessibility Improvements

Marin Transit is replacing and adding shelters and benches at local bus stops around the County.

 

The first bus shelter installations will be at:
City of San Rafael:

  • Kerner St & Larkspur St
  • Kerner St & Fairfax St
  • Canal St & Sonoma St
  • Canal St & Novato St

City of Novato:

  • Redwood Blvd & Grant Ave (northbound, curbside stops)
  • Redwood Blvd & Grant Ave (southbound, curbside stops)
  • Rowland Blvd at the US 101 off-ramp (westbound)
  • Rowland Blvd at the US 101 off ramp (southbound)
**Shelters come in dark green or light green (shown above).

 

More improvements are scheduled for locations throughout Marin County. The improvement projects are funded with the Federal State of Good Repair and California Proposition 1B grant funds. Email bus stop improvement requests to info@marintransit.org.

 

South Novato Bus Stop Improvements Construction Fall 2013

The South Novato Bus Stop Improvements construction project will improve bus patron access and transfers in Novato by upgrading two transit stop locations. Construction is anticipated in September or October 2013. Improvements include construction of bus pads, curb ramps, improved crosswalks, and minor signal modifications in the following two areas:

  1. Stops near the Rowland Boulevard and Highway 101 interchange, and
  2. Stops near the Igancio/Bel Marin Keys and Highway 101 interchange.

These are existing high use stops (>100 boarding a day) that serve multiple bus lines and have impediments that limit the transfers between local bus and regional bus routes. Improvements to the existing Downtown Transit Center on Redwood Boulevard at Grant Ave will be pursued in a separate project.

 

Location 1: Ignacio Blvd and Enfrente
On the west side of Highway 101 at the Ignacio Blvd./ Enfrente Road intersection, accessibility will be improved by updating the curb ramps at the northeast and northwest corners of the intersection.  Minor traffic signal equipment will be relocated to facilitate improved access.  Additionally, the east-west and north-south crosswalks will be realigned and median islands modified to aid access. 

 

Location 2: West Side of Rowland Interchange - Regional and Local Stop Improvements
On the west side of Highway 101, the westbound local bus stop will be relocated one block east to be closer to the regional bus stop on the southbound off-ramp. A new curb, gutter, and sidewalk will be built on the north side of Rowland Blvd between southbound off-ramp and Redwood Blvd to serve the local stop and connect to the regional bus stop. The new shelter will be installed at the local bus stop.


Location 3: East Side of Rowland Interchange - Regional and Local Stop Improvements
On the east side of Highway 101 at Rowland Blvd., this project will improve conditions at the intersection of Rowland Blvd and the northbound on- and off-ramps for pedestrians transferring between existing local and regional bus stops. This includes relocating the north-southbound crosswalk to a location that provides greater visibility, updating curb ramps to current ADA standards, creating new pedestrian paths and updating traffic signal equipment.  Access is further improved by providing a new crosswalk and curb ramps in an east-west direction north of Rowland Blvd. at the northbound on-ramp to and from the existing Park & Ride facility. 

 

 

This project is funded through the Surface Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and Regional Improvement Program (RIP) of the California Department of Transportation.
