Marin Access Services

Travel Navigators

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. By phone, email, or in-person, this is a one-stop shop to help you get the most out of Marin Access.


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. With this service, riders who cannot access our general service routes can still maintain their freedom to travel around Marin.

Volunteer Driver

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. Travel Navigators are also available to provide referrals to community-based volunteer driver programs that match riders with drivers.

Marin Catch-A-Ride

The Catch-A-Ride program is an option that enables seniors age 80 and older, seniors between 60 and 80 who no longer drive, and paratransit eligible riders to take taxi rides at a discounted rate within Marin County.

Travel Training

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. Click below to request a travel training and tell us more about your needs.
