TAM, Lyft, and Whistlestop Partner for SMART Station Access, Marin County, California, 2017
5 minutes Date Launched: Sep 12, 2017 Date Ended: Mar 12, 2018
The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) in San Rafael, California has partnered with both Lyft and Whistlestop to make it easier for riders to get to and from Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) stations in Marin County. Through this six-month pilot program, riders can receive $5 off Lyft Line rides within the Marin county service area any time during the SMART hours of operation, as long as the ride either starts or ends at an eligible SMART station. Whistlestop will provide ADA service to eligible riders. This partnership, funded by Marin’s annual Vehicle Registration Fee, started September 12 and aims to promote shared rides to facilitate convenient, on-demand travel, while also reducing both congestion and parking demand.
