Tech Tips for Transportation

Want to get around without driving? Your Smartphone, tablet and computer are great tools for getting rides! In partnership with Marin Transit, this is a class to learn about transportation options in Marin. We will show you how to get online and use web sites and apps for determining the fastest, cheapest and most timely ways for getting 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! Bring your Smartphone, tablet, or laptop to class. This course is especially geared to seniors and disabled riders as well as caregivers who may be interested in transportation options.


This 4-hour course is generously funded by Marin Transit and offered at a reduced rate of $10-20 (depending on location).
