LOCAL BUS CHANGES FOR DECEMBER 10, 2006

Marin County Transit District (MCTD) is pleased to announce the following changes to the local bus system for December 10 on services operated by Golden Gate Transit. These changes respond to customer comments following the September 2006 local bus route changes. MCTD wants to thank all bus riders who submitted comments.

  1. Restored evening service to Fairfax – Added westbound evening trips on Route 23, leaving San Rafael Transit Center (SRTC) at 9:30 pm and 10:30 pm on weekdays. Added eastbound evening trips on Route 23 leaving Manor at 9:32 pm, 10:32 pm and 11:32 pm weekdays. Similar service between Fairfax and San Anselmo was added on Saturdays.
  2. Restored evening service to Mill Valley – Three additional evening trips between Marin City, Downtown Mill Valley and Strawberry were added leaving Marin City at 8:39 pm, 9:39 pm and 10:39 pm, Monday thru Saturday.
  3. Trial Extension of Route 52 – A trial extension of the Route 52 from Novato to San Rafael will start in December. To make this possible, the route will run every hour instead of every half hour. This route is designed to be supplemental corridor service and will NOT make timed connections at the San Rafael Transit Center.
  4. Improved Scheduling of Route 23 and Route 22 – Running times have been adjusted during weekday peak periods to address on-time performance issues. Half hourly northbound service between Strawberry and San Rafael Transit Center will start two hours earlier on weekday afternoons.
  5. Additional Route 71 Trip – An additional Route 71 southbound bus will run at 2:25 pm on weekdays to reduce overloads on corridor buses.
  6. Deletions – The following trips will be cancelled effective December 10, 2006 due to low ridership:
