Marin County Transit District (Marin Transit) has partnered with ride-hailing company, Via, to launch Marin Transit Connect, an on-demand microtransit service. Through this one-year pilot program, individuals in northern San Rafael can request rides on accessible, seven-passenger vans any weekday from 7am to 7pm. The service is operated by Via and can be booked either though the Marin Transit Connect app or by calling the Marin Access Information Line. Regular rides cost $4 per seat, while rides for individuals eligible for Marin Access services and all rides to or from a transit stop only cost $2. Monthly passes for unlimited rides are also available for $40. This shared shuttle pilot aims to offer a convenient, affordable way to get around.
