Construction of Bus Stop Improvements to Start This Week

Tue, Dec 4, 2018

The State of Good Repair project is designed to improve accessibility, safety, and amenities of local bus stops in Marin County.  Two prior phases have been completed and construction of the final phase of the project starts the week of December 3.   During construction, bus stops will be relocated to allow the contractor to safely install the location upgrades. 

Starting this Thursday, December 6, stop # 41159 at Mission Avenue at Mary Street will undergo improvements to the curb, gutter and sidewalk.  In addition to further assist the site’s accessibility, the planter strip will be removed.  Until December 21, 2018, while the new concrete is drying, riders will use a temporary bus stop about 50 feet east of the current bus stop.

Route 122 Extended to East San Rafael

Mon, Aug 13, 2018

Effective August 20, 2018, Marin Transit will extend select trips on Route 122 to serve East San Rafael. This extension will provide hourly service between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm on school days only. The new service will operate as a pilot project and help the District test demand for fixed route service to the San Rafael neighborhoods of Peacock Gaps, Glenwood, Bayside Acres, Lock Lomond, and Country Club. The need for additional transit service to these areas was identified in the 2016/17 East San Rafael Assessment and included in the District's update of the Short Range Transit Plan in 2017. In addition to the extension of Route 122, Marin Transit expanded its service area in March of 2018 for Marin Access senior/ADA service and the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway Transportation extended its Route 31 ferry feeder service to East San Rafael in June of 2018.
