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. 

Below is a summary of our Marin Access services. If you're not sure which one is right for you, use the Program Finder tool to the right. It will help you determine which transportation programs in Marin are available to suit your needs.

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.

Paratransit

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 65 and older, 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. 

Marin Access Low Income Fare Assistance

Marin Access offers fare assistance for those that are enrolled in Medi-Cal or qualify based on annual income. Click below to learn more and to complete the application for the Low Income Fare Assistance (LIFA) program.
