Do you need a last mile connection between your SMART Train stop and your workplace? There are a few options to consider when planning your commute trip.
Marin Transit Connect
The County of Marin has partnered with Marin Transit to provide a NEW solution to get you to and from the SMART station. Marin Transit Connect is an on-demand rideshare service that allows you to request rides using your smart phone. Marin Connect has a much larger service area than the existing shuttle and will be able to service more work locations. You will be able to request rides to:
- Jeannette Prandi

All Connect fares to and from the SMART station and your work location will be covered by the County for the trial period. If you would like to use this service please email RideGreen and we will send you a promo code.
Civic Center Service — Keeping with the County of Marin’s wellness goals, we encourage employees to walk from the SMART station to your workplace. In the event that you cannot walk or during wet weather, we have you covered — Marin Transit has timed ROUTE 49 & 35 to meet the SMART train and drop you off at Judge Haley Drive under the middle arch.

SMART allows you to ride your bicycle on the train and has several spots on the trains to secure your bike. If you would like a more active form of commuting to boost your health and wellness, you can ride your bike from your transit stop to your workplace. To search for a bike path from a SMART train stop to your workplace, you can use Google Maps. As with any new trip by bicycling, it's always help to test ride your route first on the weekends or prior to commuting to work for the first time by bike.
