Celebrate SMART's First Year of Service at SMARTFest
Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) is celebrating its first year of service by inviting the community to SMARTFest on Saturday, August 18 from 10am-3pm at the Novato Hamilton Station, 10 Main Gate Road. SMARTFest is a FREE festival that will include live music, food trucks, beer, wine and other local vendors, and activities for kids! As part of the celebration, SMART is also offering FREE train service on August 18 & 19, and increasing service with extra trips to get people to and from the festival.
SMART began passenger rail service in the North Bay in August 2017, and since opening its doors, has carried more than 630,000 passengers. The system currently covers 43 miles from Santa Rosa to downtown San Rafael. There are currently two SMART stations in Novato, San Marin and Hamilton, with a third station in Downtown Novato expected to be completed by late 2019.
The free service schedule for SMARTFest is available at SonomaMarinTrain.org/SMARTFest.
