SMART Connect Larkspur Shuttle

The SMART Connect Larkspur shuttle serves the SMART Larkspur station, the Golden Gate Ferry Larkspur Terminal, and the surrounding Larkspur Landing area. On weekends, SMART Connect Larkspur also serves The Village and Town Center shopping malls in Corte Madera.

The Connect Larkspur shuttle provides an alternative to the Central Marin Ferry Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge, linking the SMART Larkspur Station with the Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry Terminal. This service is especially convenient for passengers who find the walk challenging. Due to vehicle capacity limits, priority is given to those with mobility difficulties or those who feel they may not be able to walk from the train station to the ferry terminal.

Although the shuttle may offer shorter train-ferry transfers than those listed in the SMART Riders’ Guide, riders should plan according to the published connections. Please note that SMART trains and Golden Gate ferries will not wait for the Connect shuttle.
