Tech Tips for Transportation

Want to learn more about how you can get around without driving? Your smartphone, tablet and computer are great tools for learning about your transportation options and managing your rides! In partnership with Marin Transit, the Tech Tips for Transportation class is offered to help you learn about transportation options in Marin. We will show you how to get online and use web sites and apps for determining the fastest and least expensive way to get where you want to go. Learn how to take the bus, SMART train, ferry or maybe get a ride from a volunteer, use shared ride services (Lyft), subsidized taxi’s and more! This course is especially geared toward older adults, riders with disabilities, and caregivers who may be interested in their transportation options.


This 2-session course is generously funded by Marin Transit and offered at a reduced rate of $10-20 (cost depends on the location where you attend).
