Free Transit Trips To & From Vaccination Appointments

Starting February 24, Marin TransitSMART, 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.

In addition, Marin Transit will offer a shuttle to and from the Larkspur SMART station to the Ferry Terminal vaccine site for those with mobility issues. Riders can follow the directional signage at the exit of the platform leading to the shuttle pickup area. Those who prefer to walk from the station are permitted to access the site on foot or by bike.

To receive a free ride, customers should be ready to show physical or digital confirmation of their same-day vaccine appointment at time of boarding. This joint effort by Marin County transit agencies is aimed at reducing transportation and cost barriers for community members to receive the vaccine.
