Marin Transit provides local transit services through contracts with five service providers. Golden Gate Transit operates the largest share of local Marin Transit services under contract - Routes 17, 23, 23x, 29, 35, 36, and 71x. The two agencies have a long history as partners, and Golden Gate Transit has provided consistent and reliable service on Marin Transit local routes.
Golden Gate Transit is experiencing a high degree of driver absenteeism and has issued a press release that notifies its regional transit riders of service disruptions due to driver shortages. This shortage of Golden Gate drivers is also impacting the delivery of local service under contract with Marin Transit, which has led to missed trips in recent days. Marin Transit is not able to predict how long these impacts on Marin Transit services may continue. We are working closely with our Golden Gate Transit partners to minimize these impacts and assist riders and provide notification of upcoming impacts. Marin Transit asks that local riders refer to the Alerts section of the Marin Transit website at www.marintransit.org/service-alerts for information on new cancellations. Marin Transit apologizes in advance for any inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience and your continued patronage.
