  • Marin Transit COVID-19 service and safety updates

    We are closely monitoring what is happening with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Marin Transit is committed to keeping you safe and moving during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please continue to check this page for the latest updates.

    Overview

    The Marin County Department of Health and Human Services has issued an advisory related specifically to use of public transportation to limit the spread of COVID-19. Additional guidance by the Marin County Public Health Department recommends the following actions are followed:

    • Public Transportation should be used for essential travel only (e.g. for essential service employees to get to and from work; for individuals to obtain essential goods and services)
    • Infection control recommendations should always be followed on public transportation:
      • Individuals who have signs or symptoms of influenza or COVID-19 (cough, shortness or breath, fever) should not board public transportation.
      • Travelers should maintain 6 feet of separation from other passengers and the operator while onboard or waiting at stops.
      • Passengers should wear face coverings at all times, covering the mouth and nose.
      • Hands should be washed or sanitized before and after using public transit.
      • High contact areas should be cleaned at the end of the transit line.

    Marin Transit, in partnership with all its contracted service providers, continues to follow the Marin County Environmental Health Services guidance for infection control in community spaces. We ask that riders review and follow the guidance outlined above as it relates to public transit services. These recommendations will remain in effect until further notice from the Health Office. Guidance will be reviewed and updated as necessary. 

    For the latest information about COVID-19, please refer to the resources provided by the Marin Health and Human Services Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Service Impacts

    At this time, the District is operating regular service and the only planned change is the suspension of Supplemental School Routes (routes numbered in the 100 series) and the Muir Woods Shuttle during school closures. Supplemental School service will resume when school closures are lifted. Please check www.marintransit.org/service-alerts for updates on any new information or service impacts related to COVID-19.

    To adhere to physical distancing guidance onboard vehicles, drivers are asked to limit capacities. Marin Transit is operating backup service in high ridership areas where limited capacities are creating pass-ups, specifically along Highway 101 and within the Canal area of San Rafael. The backup trips help minimize impacts associated with pass-ups and give riders additional service options. Canal backup service (“Canal Shuttle”) will operate between the hours of 6:00 am and 3:00 pm (Monday-Saturday) and Highway 101 backup service (“Novato-Marin City”) will operate 7:00 am – 6:00 pm (Monday-Saturday). Routing through the Canal will follow the Route 35 alignment/stops and routing along Highway 101 will serve all bus pads in Marin County, the San Rafael Transit Center, Marin City, and stops in Downtown Novato including Redwood/Grant and Redwood/Olive.

    Safety & Cleaning

    The health and safety of our passengers and bus operators is a top priority for Marin Transit. Since the beginning of March when concerns were initially raised regarding the spread of COVID-19, enhanced cleaning protocols on all of Marin Transit’s vehicles were implemented which includes an additional 30 minutes of daily cleaning of high touch areas inside the bus with a cleaning agent recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    In addition to frequent cleanings, Marin Transit has implemented additional measures to limit disease transmission such as requiring drivers and passengers to wear facial coverings while onboard a bus, limiting the number of passengers onboard at any given time to allow for adequate physical distancing, and when possible, buses have been equipped with hand sanitizer and drivers keep windows open while the bus is in service to increase the flow of fresh air.

    Marin Transit staff will continue to stay up to date on the latest guidance from our local public health officers and with industry best practices. We will continue to make adjustments to our cleaning practices and onboard policies to meet current guidance and ensure our passengers feel comfortable riding the bus.
