The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) project's main goal is provide transit access to the underserved north coast areas. Although the bulk of this plan involves the creation of a north-south rail line servicing areas between Larkspur and Cloverdale, it also is heavily in favor of non-motorized transit. Along the entirety of its track, SMART is dedicated to installing a rail-with-trail system to service those who would prefer a non-motorized, active form of transportation.
Even as costs for the SMART project begin to mount, they are unwavering in their stance toward keeping their rail-with-trail part of the plan. Like the SMART train, the pathway will service each station and provide 75 miles of Class I pathways. The project is set to begin limited service in 2014, with full completion of rail-with-trail and service by 2029.
