On Monday, October 5, Marin Transit’s Board of Directors unanimously approved free local transit rides county-wide on all fixed routes during the upcoming 2020 General Election.
Marin Transit is seeking feedback from all riders in the form of a short on-line survey. The information gathered through the survey will assist the District in planning during the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to ensure that adjustments to our operations and services best address the needs and concerns of our riders. The survey will be open from Thursday, June 25 through Thursday July 2, 2020.
Starting February 24, 2021, Marin Transit, SMART, and Golden Gate Transit and Ferry will provide free transit trips to and from vaccination sites for community members with appointments. All three agencies are offering free rides by bus, train, and boat in both directions to mass vaccination sites, hospitals, or anywhere else that is offering vaccinations.
Marin Transit is adding and adjusting service this month to ensure riders do not get left behind by pass-up activity due to capacity limitations. These changes are also implemented in light of Golden Gate Transit service reductions on regional and commute routes. Changes are effective Sunday, December 13 and temporary as the District continues to adjust service due to evolving conditions of the pandemic.
