Improvements Coming to Marin Access!

Thu, Sep 16, 2021

For more than 50 years, Marin Transit has provided transit service to older adults and people with disabilities in Marin County. Today, Marin Transit provides ADA paratransit service and a suite of mobility programs and services under the Marin Access brand to meet people where they are and get them to where they want to go. 

As Marin County’s population continues to age, the District is committed to ensuring that there is a robust transit system that will empower older adults and people with disabilities to live independently, travel with confidence, and remain connected to the community.
