Commuter Information

Commuters will soon have a new option when it comes to Highway 101. The SMART train will run from Santa Rosa to San Rafael at a projected 70 miles an hour in brand new, clean diesel trains; SMART will allow you to get out of your car on Highway 101 and still get where you need to go – for work or for fun.

The rail project is estimated to serve between three and five thousand passengers per day, taking more than 1.4 million car trips off Highway 101 annually, reducing greenhouse gases by at least 124,000 pounds per day.

In about 55-minutes from Santa Rosa to San Rafael, you can surf the net or answer emails with on-board wifi, grab a snack or beverage at the concession stand, or simply catch up on some zzzz’s with SMART.
