I've been following the developments of the upcoming Marin Transit Service Changes due 12 June 2016, in which I have been tipped off by at least two drivers working for Marin Airporter on which Golden Gate Transit routes will go to either Marin Airporter or MV Transportation. So far, the details are a bit fluid, but I have some idea of which routes have been awarded to both agencies.
Now that the service adjustments are coming, I would like to bring up my ideas on how to further improve the transit operations in north San Rafael and Novato so that adequate levels of service can be provided at all times. The routes involved in this discussion include:
Golden Gate Transit Routes:
Local Bus Routes:
Community Shuttle Routes:

Marin Transit is rolling out eleven new buses that will operate throughout Marin County. These buses are built by Gillig in Livermore, and these are being used right now on select school trips in preparation for more intensive use come June 2016.
I was very fortunate to attend not just one, but three meetings in nearly two hours, in which I was able to view in person how Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District (District) meetings are structured. And it was a very fruitful and fascinating experience since I got to speak on one of the Board's agenda items. Perhaps the most interesting part was that, not only I got to attend two public hearings that focused on the pending elimination of Route 10 and the fare hike due this July, but also participated in a Transportation Committee meeting as an observer that discussed the future of mobility in the Tiburon Peninsula.
