California’s Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) carried its 100,000 bicyclist last week.

“The bicycling community has been very supportive, taking their bikes on board as part of their daily commute and for recreation,” said SMART Board Chairman Gary Phillips.

Since opening its doors in 2017, SMART passengers have included bicyclists who use their bikes to get to and from stations on a regular basis. SMART, the Bay Area’s newest transit system, recently celebrated carrying its one millionth rider, after operating for just over a year.

SMART is slated to open its Larkspur extension in late 2019, and plans to add two more two-car trains to its fleet this spring. Work is also underway on two new stations in Larkspur and in downtown Novato. SMART is also working on extending further north to Windsor by the end of 2021.
