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

The contractor continues to make progress on completing the final phase of the State of Good Repair (SOGR) Bus Stop Improvements Project.  Construction started in December 2018 on a series of upgrades to local bus stops to improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access. The rainy weather pattern continues to impact the schedule for installing improvements.

This week (March 18-22) has been no exception with only two sunny days to schedule work. Next week doesn't offer much relief but we plan to use the time to focus on paperwork and coordination tasks.  In spite of the inclement weather patterns, of the eleven bus stop locations across the county, the project has only two stops remaining:

  • Tiburon Blvd & Greenwood Cove Rd
  • Bellam Boulevard & E. Francisco Boulevard

We are counting on April gifting us with drier weather to install the planned improvements. The next update will share the poposed construction dates. If you have any questions about the project or construction activity, contact Adrienne Taylor at 415 226-0855 or ataylor@marintransit.org.

By now you might have heard the good news that for a broad region of the state including Marin County, the drought is over. Marin Transit offers the tattered State of Good Repair (SOGR) construction schedule to prove it.  Construction has been underway since December 3, 2018 for the final phase of the SOGR Bus Stop Improvements Project.  In between the downpours, crews have been installing upgrades to local bus stops that improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access.  Making progress has truly been a challenge as rain unrelentingly fell upon the construction sites. However, the drier forecase for next week will allow us to schedule some of the work that fell victim to the torrential rains experienced the past few weeks.  Below is the rescheduled work plan.

Next week (February 19-22) - President's Day Week:

Redhill Avenue at Sequoia Drive - The construction of this stop will coincide with Spring Break since it is a heavily used student stop. This helps to minimize passenger disruptions. A temporary stop will be placed in front of United Markets at Red Hill Ave and Forbes.

    ✔ Install new shelter

Week of February 25 - March 8:

Magnolia Avenue at Bon Air Road -

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):

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.
