Changes to Social Distancing Requirements

Tue, May 18, 2021

Beginning Wednesday, May 19, Marin Transit and Golden Gate Transit and Ferry will ease social distancing requirements from six feet to three feet on all trips in Marin County and San Francisco. The updated requirements will add much-needed passenger capacity to transit vehicles and reduce the number of customers experiencing “pass ups” due to limited seating. Masks will still be required to ride at all times.

The relaxed social distancing requirements follow guidance from state and local public health officials and come amid growing vaccination rates, decreasing COVID infection rates, and the reopening of indoor activities and businesses in Marin County and San Francisco. Passengers should continue to provide at least 6 feet of distance to transit operators in accordance with public health guidance. Both agencies will be updating onboard measures and signage to reflect the new social distancing policy.

Free Transit Rides to COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments

Wed, Feb 24, 2021

Starting February 24, 2021, Marin Transit, SMART, and Golden Gate Transit and Ferry will provide free transit trips to and from vaccination sites for community members with appointments. All three agencies are offering free rides by bus, train, and boat in both directions to mass vaccination sites, hospitals, or anywhere else that is offering vaccinations.
