Free isn’t too good to be true, neither on the Marin Transit System nor at the College of Marin. The college will cover up to 18 units of classes for credit and noncredit students during the spring semester, with a tuition waiver open to those who register through the new Clear Path program. On the roadway, adults 65-plus and people with disabilities can ride for free via Marin Transit’s local fixed-route services countywide through March. 

Riders should note that demand response services (Paratransit, Catch-A-Ride, Dial-A-Ride, and Connect) and the Muir Woods Shuttle will be exempt from free fare offerings. “This is a bold, equity-driven plan to rebuild ridership and deliver results to people who most need financial relief,” says Nancy Whelan, Marin Transit ‘s general manager.
