In response to changes in ridership demand resulting from what are now, statewide Shelter in Place orders, the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) District is making additional changes to its train service schedule.

Transportation is the single biggest source of GHG emissions. By shifting to low carbon transportation modes, we can prevent millions of pounds of emissions annually. SMART is a green commute alternative to the one-person-in-one-car model of sitting in tra_c idling on the Hwy 101 corridor, emitting tons of GHGs. The 1.72 million people who have ridden on SMART prevented 8.1 million pounds of CO2 emissions, compared to the same trip in a car.
