Marin Transit Connect Evaluation

In July of 2019, Marin Transit released an evaluation of the District's first on-demand, fully accessible transit service - Connect. The report documents the program's history, performance during the first year of service, results of a rider survey, and identified next steps for the program.

Based on recommendations to the Marin Transit Board in October of 2019, the District released an RFP to solicit On Demand Mobility Software to support the program as it evolves out of its pilot phase.

Two Battery Electric Buses

Marin Transit has received it's first two Zero Emission Battery Electric Buses in September 2018! 

The buses, which can seat 32 passengers, will charge overnight and be operated on Marin Transit local routes by Golden Gate Transit (GGT).  Charging infrastructure has been installed already.  The advertised range of the buses are 145 miles per charge, but things like heat and hills reduce the range.  The buses will first operate no more than 80 miles per day as both Transit agencies learn more about the buses' capabilities.
