New bus route to link Marin County to some East Bay cities starting today

Pilot service will run for 9 months to determine ridership interest

Golden Gate Transit will launch a new pilot bus route linking several East Bay cities to Marin County today.

With the new service, Route 580 will run every 30 minutes between San Rafael and Emeryville, Berkeley and Albany, with five westbound trips in the morning and five eastbound trips in the afternoon.

Golden Gate Transit representatives said buses will travel along Hollis Street, Ashby Avenue, San Pablo Avenue and Buchanan Street in the East Bay. In Marin County, they will travel a route similar to Route 40 but will be extended along a portion of Andersen

Drive previously served by Route 42.

The route will run for nine months as a demonstration project and will be made permanent if it meets ridership goals, according to a Golden Gate spokesman.
