SMART reduces train service

April 17, 2020

Due to a significant decline in ridership resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit District (SMART) implemented further reductions to weekday train service which took place Monday, April 6, 2020. The modified weekday schedule will operate 16 train trips daily, serving all stations and will remain in effect until further notice. With this new round of reductions, SMART has scaled back its weekday service by 50 percent. Additionally, all weekend service remains suspended.

During the COVID-19 health crisis, SMART’s ridership has declined by 90 percent. The agency will continue to monitor ridership and may implement additional service level changes as needed.

Trip planning

Under the modified schedule, some train departure times have been changed in order to provide adequate coverage for mid-day travelers. Riders are advised to check the online schedule at https://sonomamarintrain.org/schedules-fares before starting a trip. A printable PDF version of the modified schedule is also available online. Other transit agencies have modified their service schedule as well—visit 511.org for updates about other transit services.

Social distancing protocols

SMART continues to maintain a twice-daily thorough onboard cleaning and sanitation of all trains. Social distancing protocols are posted on all stations and trains.
