Current Projects

Kerner Boulevard Redevelopment Project

Marin Transit is in the process of a redevelopment project on Kerner Boulevard in San Rafael, CA. In 2022 we opened a vehicle maintenance facility for our demand-response fleet. Currently, we are working on an adjacent project which will eventually be combined into an integrated parking, maintenance, and electric vehicle charging facility for our demand response fleet.

Marin Transit Fare Study

Marin Transit is currently studying our fare collection system and seeking input from riders. Next year, big upgrades are coming to the Clipper system that will improve the experience for those who use Clipper to pay their fare. Also, the cash boxes we currently use to collect cash and process passes are going out of production. Marin Transit is considering what technology should replace these fare boxes to continue to allow passengers to pay with cash.

ADA Bus Stop Improvements

Marin Transit is currently finalizing plans to renovate 22 high-ridership stops to improve accessibility for people with disabilities (per Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA). The bus stops were chosen from an assessment and ride-check performed in 2017. These renovations will include the addition of accessible landing pads and upgrades to passenger amenities to tie in with street design. The project, estimated to cost $1.8M, will also include the addition of three new bus stops. At E. Francisco Blvd & Medway Marin Transit will build a new bus pullout and crosswalk.

Transit Priority Corridor Project

Marin Transit will make improvements to high ridership transit corridors in Marin County. The corridors are 4th Street and Lincoln Ave. in San Rafael, and South Novato Blvd. in Novato. Proposed improvements will include upgrades to bus stop amenities, enhancements to passenger information, and transit priority treatments to make transit service faster, more reliable, and more accessible to riders.

Electrified Bus Charging and Maintenance Facility

Marin Transit’s biggest need is for a centralized fixed route facility for maintenance, parking, and charging of zero-emission buses. This facility will support continued investment in electric buses, improve operational efficiency, increase competition for contracted service, and reduce long term risk.
