• Commuter Benefits - SMART Train and Emergency Ride Home

    Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) train has officially launched. The train will run from the Sonoma County Airport to downtown San Rafael - with multiple stops in between. The Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) is pleased to offer discounted pricing for SMART’s unlimited Eco-Pass for the 2017-18 school year effective October 1, 2017.
    School employees can purchase Eco-Passes for unlimited rides all month for only $155 per month using pre-tax dollars!

    Information on the Commuter Benefits program can be found on the MCOE Personnel website under Commuter Benefits.

    Should an employee emergency arise, Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) Emergency Ride Home (ERH) Program provides a reimbursable ride home in cases of emergency for employees who use alternative transportation, such as carpooling, vanpooling, public transit, SMART train, bicycling, and walking.

    All Marin businesses are eligible to participate in this free program. To enroll in the program, go to TAM website and select Employer Enrollment.
