SMART will run 34 weekday trips, with southbound service starting at 4:19 a.m. out of the Sonoma County Airport station, and northbound service beginning at 5:59 a.m. out of San Rafael. Service will continue mid-day, through the peak commute, and into the evening with the last southbound train departing the Sonoma County Airport station at 6:49 p.m. and the last northbound train departing San Rafael at 8:35 p.m. (Please see schedule below)
The Santa Rosa North and Sonoma County Airport stations had been closed due to power outages and extreme fire conditions, and SMART’s Santa Rosa-based Rail Operations Center had been operating on generator power. Power has now been restored at SMART’s facilities. SMART was able to get back in service Monday afternoon, running from the Santa Rosa Downtown and Ran Rafael stations, and has been providingfree passenger service since that time.

Safety is SMART’s top priority and we will continue to monitor fire conditions and will use all necessary safety precautions.
