SMART Commuter Rail Adds Third Car

The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) District, Petaluma, CA, recently added a third rail car to some of its morning and early afternoon commute runs, which depart southbound from the Sonoma County Airport Station and northbound from the San Rafael Station.

“Based on exceptional demand and feedback from passengers, especially those using bicycles as a part of their commute, we felt it was time to expand our service to meet the growing demand,” said SMART General Manager Farhad Mansourian. “As SMART ridership continues to grow, we will always be looking for ways to better serve North Bay residents.”

SMART reported that it has provided more than 250,000 rides, including almost 25,000 cyclists, since the line entered service on Aug. 25, 2017.
