North Bay rail: SMART's Community Ties

The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit system has launched Community Ties illustrating how the system helps bind the North Bay economically, socially and environmentally.

Among the factoids shared by the rail agency:

  • SMART trains emit 96% fewer particulate matter emissions than standard diesel trains
  • SMART is the first train system in North America to use clean, EPA-approved tier 4 engines
  • Passes and programs can save riders up to 50% of train travel costs
  • 24 miles of multi-use trails have been completed
  • 56 acres of wetlands have preserved.

MTC and SMART are transportation partners.
