Independence through Mobility
Marin Transit offers older adults and people with disabilities a variety of options for getting around without driving. Whether you need to learn how to ride the fixed route bus or sign up for an alternative transportation service, we are here to help.
Marin Access participants are residents of Marin County that are age 65+ or are a person with a disability who cannot independently use regular Marin Transit or Golden Gate Transit bus service some or all of the time. As a participant of Marin Access, you'll gain access to the Catch-A-Ride pilot program, the STAR & TRIP Volunteer Driver programs, Travel Training, and for those that qualify, Marin Access Paratransit and the Marin Access Fare Assistance program.

Marin Access Services
Travel Navigators help older adults and people with disabilities understand the various transit options available to them and walk them through the process of becoming eligible.
Marin Access Paratransit provides pre-scheduled, door-to-door bus transportation in Marin County for people with disabilities who have been certified as unable to ride our fixed-route bus system either all or some of the time.
The STAR and TRIP volunteer driver programs empower older adults and people with disabilities to remain independent by providing a mileage reimbursement for their friends, neighbors, and other community members who provide them with rides.
Marin Catch-A-Ride Pilot Program
The Catch-A-Ride pilot program allows eligible riders to use paper or digital vouchers to take up to 30 trips per quarter with our providers at a discounted rate within Marin County.
Marin Access has developed several travel training options for Marin residents who want to learn about their choices for getting around without driving. We currently offer group presentations and one-on-one travel training aboard the bus.
Marin Access Fare Assistance
Marin Access offers fare assistance for those that are enrolled in Medi-Cal or qualify based on annual income.
Marin Access Passenger Portal
Marin Access Passenger Portal allows riders or rider delegates to book paratransit trips, manage their Marin Access account, and add value to their account online.
Marin Access Updates
Marin Transit has initiated a survey seeking feedback from current riders and those in need of expanded mobility options in West Marin, especially residents that are older adults and/or those with disabilities. This is part of the District's continued efforts to improve service, find ways to better serve residents of West Marin, and build upon existing data and previous feedback collected from community partners and other stakeholders as part of the Marin Access Innovation Incubator program.
Feedback collected through this survey will allow Marin Transit to improve existing programs such as Stagecoach Route 61 or Route 68, the Marin Access Shuttle program, the TRIP volunteer driver program, and consider offering new programs to better serve community members in West Marin. The survey is available in English and Spanish and offers those that complete it to enter a raffle to win one of three $100 Amazon Gift Cards. We anticipate closing the survey March 29, 2024, but may extend the date based on responses received.
