Do you need a last mile connection between your trainsit stop and your workplace? Here are some options to consider when planning your work commute.
Marin Transit Connect
Marin Transit Connect is your connection to work, home, transit, and other destinations across Marin County. The service is entirely on-demand, and it operates anywhere in the service area— not just at bus stops. Connect is part of Connect2Transit, an integrated program of mobility options within the Uber app brought to you in partnership with the Transportation Authority of Marin.
TAM has partnered with the County of Marin to provide additional discounts for employees who use transit to travel to work. County of Marin provides the discounted rides via the Uber app for employees who commute between selected County of Marin office locations and transit locations in Marin County.
If you would like to use the special County of Marin discount, please email RideGreen to request a link to the discount voucher.
Getting set up is simple! Just follow the following steps:
- Email RideGreen to request a link to the County of Marin discount voucher.
- Download the Uber app on your smartphone and use the County of Marin voucher link.
- Sign into your existing Uber account or download and create an Uber account. You will be prompted to “Accept voucher.”
- After accepting the voucher, you will be able to enter a destination.
- Select either the Marin Transit Connect service or UberPool for rides. (Note that due to COVID-19, UberX is available in place of UberPool).
- If the trip is covered by the voucher, the subsidy will appear above the “confirm” button.
Visit the Marin Transit Connect website for service area maps, fares, service hours, and reservation information and to download the Uber app .
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 ROUTES 49 & 35 to meet the SMART train and drop you off at Judge Haley Drive under the middle arch.
Other Transit Connections
SMART Train riders who use Clipper receive a discounted rate when transferring to Golden Gate Transit, Marin Transit, Petaluma Transit, Santa Rosa CityBus or Sonoma County Transit. The same discount applies when you transfer from one of these public transit providers to SMART and pay with cash value. Passholders must add additional cash value onto the Clipper Card to pay for these transfers.
Marin Commutes Emergency Ride Home
Do you commute by bike, transit, carpool, or vanpool and need a ride home due to an unforeseen emergency? There's no need to panic. If an unexpected situation arises, you can be reimbursed for an ride home via taxi, Uber, Lyft, or equivalent transportation service, by simply submitting a reimbursement request. Commuters are guaranteed four emergency rides home a year in the event of an unforeseen emergency occurring during regular work hours. You are not required to participate in a RideGreen incentive program to request an emergency ride home. Visit Marin Commutes for more details.
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.
