SMART, commuter trains will roll in Marin for first time in 75 years

With the arrival of SMART, commuter trains will roll in Marin for first time in 75 years By: Mark Prado (mprado@marinij.com) Monday, May 11, 2015 – 4:57 p.m. For the first time in almost 75 years, Marin residents climbed aboard a commuter train in the county last week. A two-car Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit train pulled into San Rafael last week, parking under Highway 101 just north of the Civic Center. It was brought in as part of a show-and-tell; Rep. Jared Huffman had convened a transportation forum at nearby Autodesk. The new train system – set to begin service next year – represents a new attack on Highway 101 gridlock. As the train rested on new track, it became a magnet for the curious who stopped to take pictures and even selfies with the shiny green-and-silver cars. Hoping to build a connection with the community, SMART officials welcomed the public on board to check out the new cars.
