MCTD: West Marin Stagecoach Community Meetings begin next week

STAGECOACH COMMUNITY MEETINGS IN JANUARY 2007
The Marin County Transit District (MCTD) is considering schedule improvements to the West Marin Stagecoach and will be hosting a series of public workshops in West Marin to discuss the Stagecoach and to obtain community input on possible Stagecoach service changes.Potential schedule changes include:
* Improve timings for schedule adherence on South and North Routes.
* Additional mid-day run on the North Route three days per week (Mon, Wed, & Fri)
* North Route service to Bear Valley Visitor Center at Pt. Reyes National Seashore Monday – Saturday to provide consistent schedule and routing
* Consistent schedule and routing of the South Route on weekdays*o Utilize Panoramic Highway to Stinson Beach (current weekend route)
o Operationally easier and less confusing for riders
o Opportunity to serve a higher-density population of riders along Panoramic
* South Route service on Sundays year-round
* New Coastal Route from Bolinas/Stinson Beach – Pt. Reyes Station three days per week (Mon, Wed, & Fri)o Three daily round-trip runs
o Reasonable layover times for appointments, errands, or shopping trips to Pt. Reyes Station
o Eliminates need for Wed/Fri South Route coastal extension

    I live in the Bay Area and although it is nice there is an alternative to driving[ I do not have a car] the schedule does not seem very user friendly. I would like to go to Point Rays or Pantoll to go walking but if I missed one bus I would be stuck for three hours waiting for the next one. With the impossible congestion going to Muir Woods I think there should be shuttles all year round not just for tourist in the summer, It is beautiful at this time of year, but no way to get there.
