Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) is the San Francisco Bay Area’s newest transportation option for travel, offering passenger rail service in Sonoma and Marin counties. SMART’s initial 43 miles of rail corridor includes 10 stations, from the Sonoma County Airport to Downtown San Rafael. Future extensions include: Larkspur, which is scheduled to be completed in 2018; Windsor; Healdsburg; and Cloverdale. The full project will provide 70 miles of passenger rail service, connecting SMART passengers with jobs, education centers, retail hubs and housing along the Sonoma-Marin corridor, and a bicycle-pedestrian pathway.
SMART will be announcing its start of service shortly.
SMART provides rail transit service that is accessible to passengers with disabilities. SMART’s platforms and trains are fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Clipper Card vending machines on SMART platforms are also ADA compliant. SMART trains have ADA accessible restrooms and seating. Onboard SMART personnel are available to assist with onboarding and exiting the train, and with any other needs that may arise.
Bikes on SMART
Bikes are welcome on board SMART trains. Each two-car SMART train has spaces for up to 24 bikes. SMART stations will have bike parking and, in some cases, secured bike lockers. SMART is also exploring partnerships to provide bike sharing near some of its stations.
Riding with Children
Young children must be supervised and strollers should be clear of the aisle when seated and the train is moving. SMART allows children 5 years old and younger to ride for free. Youth ages 6 to 18, receive a 50% discount. Information on fares and discounts can be found on our Fares Page.
SMART asks that all passengers be considerate and courteous while riding the train, so that all passengers can have a pleasant experience and enjoy the ride.
