July 18, 2016 | Voters in Marin County have made it clear that supporting senior mobility is a priority. Dedicated local funding for this purpose has been approved through ballot measures, Measure A and Measure B. These funds are entrusted to Marin Transit, the provider and a central coordinator for public transportation within Marin County.
The Transit District subsequently assumed a major role to meet the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities
In 2015, Marin Transit initiated an internal assessment of its programs serving seniors and people with disabilities. These programs fall under the umbrella of “Marin Access” and include Marin Access paratransit; volunteer driver programs STAR, TRIP and Carepool; and Catch-A-Ride, our taxi subsidy program. The purpose of this study was to learn more about our riders, how they are utilizing our services, what aspects of our programs are working for our riders, how the services are performing, and what changes in policy or programs will improve mobility management in Marin County.
This is your chance to impact transit plans for Marin seniors
The draft report is the result of this work and presents ten key recommendations for the future of Marin Access programs and transit plans for Marin seniors. Marin Transit invites stakeholders and community partners to submit written or verbal comments and feedback on the report before they ask the Board of Directors to adopt a final draft on Monday August 15, 2016.
