State of Good Repair Bus Stop Improvements

The purpose of this project is to improve accessibility, safety, and amenities of local bus stops in Marin County. 

The first phase of the project included an upgrade of all Marin Transit signage at bus stops to include bus route numbers, destination, and operation information for local routes.  Each sign has a Stop ID number so that customers can call 511 to obtain schedule information.  The second phase of the project was improvements to 12 stops throughout Marin County.

The final phase of the project will be to make improvements to the following stops:

Stop ID Stop Name Proposed Improvements
40280 Tamalpais Dr & Madera Blvd Shelter installation
40392 Lincoln Ave & Grand Ave Shelter installation
40490 Red Hill Ave & Sequoia Dr Sidewalk improvements/accessibility improvements, shelter installation

Construction has been underway since December 3, 2018 for the final phase of the State of Good Repair (SOGR) Bus Stop Improvements Project.  Crews have been installing upgrades to local bus stops that improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access.

The weather is wreaking havoc on the schedule to construct these improvements. In spite of rain being forecast intermittently over the next two weeks, the SOGR project should make some progress.  Please note that there have been substantial changes to the construction schedule provided two weeks ago.  The revised schedule shows the following:

This week (January 28 - February 1):

   Tamalpais Drive & Madera Boulevard

      ✔ Install new shelter

Next week (February 4 - 8):

   Magnolia Avenue at Bon Air Road

      ✔ Temporarily relocate stop 195 feet from current bus stop
      ✔ Remove sidewalk & asphalt
      ✔ Construct new sidewalk & pavement
      ✔ Install new shelter & trash receptacle

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.
