Marin Transit contracts for operations and maintenance of services. Staff are directly responsible for planning, capital investments, financial management, and operations oversight. Marin Transit is financially supported by Measure A Funds, State Transportation Development Act Funds, fares, property taxes and Federal Section 5311 rural transit funds.
