Marin Transit operates local bus services in Marin County, including big bus routes, community shuttles, recreational routes, and Stagecoach services between West Marin and communities along US-101.

Historical Routes and Vehicles

Prior to Marin Transit operating routes full time with its own livery, Golden Gate Transit operated routes in Marin County on behalf of the Marin County Transit District, using Golden Gate's vehicles and operators. Numerous local routes have been retained, but most have been transferred to other contractors than Golden Gate Transit. Some routes and vehicles that have disappeared from Marin Transit's network include:

Routes: 9, 33, 37, 45, 49K, 51, 52, 53, 55, 57, 59, 62, 222, and 259

Vehicles: New Flyer D60LF, Orion V, TMC-RTS (30- and 40-footer)
