The District implemented a nine-month demonstration project to provide off-peak service on two Golden Gate Transit (GGT) routes between the San Francisco Financial District and Central and Southern Marin County in an effort to fulfill the District’s Vision for Golden Gate Transit, and fulfill other important goals, which included: a) Utilize existing “deadhead” trips which do not carry passengers to provide reverse commute service between San Francisco and Marin County; b) Provide mid-day, all-day service between Central and Southern Marin County and the San Francisco Financial District; c) Offer a connection between Central Marin County and the Caltrain Station at Third and Townsend Streets for interregional trips while also serving employees located in the vicinity of the Caltrain Station and Mission Bay including the new UCSF Medical Center. This increased service adds 21 additional trips and converts 14 deadhead trips to passenger trips on GGT Routes 4 and 27. As a result of the demonstration project, staff recommends implementation of the increased mid-day service as fulfilling an important role connecting Central and Southern Marin County to San Francisco, and linking the Financial District to the Caltrain Station as well as noteworthy employers in Mission Bay.
