Dial-a-Ride services are designed to supplement and fill gaps in the existing fixed-route transit network.

These services are open to the general public and provide curb-to-curb pick ups and drop-offs within specific service areas. Advance reservations are required and rides can be scheduled up to seven days in advance.

Marin Transit offers three Dial-a-Ride services that serve the following parts of the County.


Fares for the Novato Dial-A-Ride are the same as Marin Transit's regular fares, and local passes are accepted.

For the Dillon Beach/Tomales and Point Reyes Station Dial-A-Ride services, the one-way fare for all passengers is $2.50, and only cash fares are accepted.

Up to two children age 5 and under ride free when accompanied by an adult. Children aged five and older must pay the full fare. Be sure to alert your scheduler at the time of booking if you are traveling with children. All rules that apply to adult riders also apply to children.


Vehicles are equipped with front mounted bicycle racks that hold two bicycles. All vehicles can accommodate wheelchairs. 

Only service animals for disabled passengers are permitted. No pets allowed. 

All children under the age of eight years old (unless they are 4'9" or taller) are required to use child safety seats or booster seats on Dial-A-Ride service. Safety seats must be provided and secured by the parent/guardian of the child. No child who is required to use a child safety seat may travel without an accompanying adult on Dial-A-Ride.
