Marin Civic Center is a Sonoma–Marin Area Rail Transit station in San Rafael. It is located adjacent to the Marin County Civic Center, from which it gets its name.

SMART does not own the land upon which the parking lot is located, and all parking fees for this station are paid to the owner: the County of Marin.[3]

History

BART proposed a train station near the current location as part of the Marin Line in a report sent to the approving counties in 1961.[4] Marin's exit from the Bay Area Rapid Transit District halted these plans.

The current station opened to preview service on June 29, 2017; full commuter service commenced on August 25, 2017.[2][5]
