Short-Range Transit Plan

Golden Gate Transit bus system currently carries over seven million passengers a year. The original 132 General Motors "new look" buses, purchased in 1971 and 1972, placed the fleet among the most modern and comfortable in the country, and it continues to be so today.  The equipment caters to the long-haul Marin and Sonoma commuters.  Customers find the accommodations so comfortable, they lie back and catch a wink or two.

As of January 2010, the GGT active bus fleet consists of 204 lift-equipped buses. The GGT fleet has been 100% lift-equipped since the retirement of the original "new look" buses from the fleet in November 1997.

In the early 1980's, GGT began its ongoing bus replacement program.  Under this program, older buses are retired and replaced with new, high-capacity, "clean air" buses that accommodate persons in wheelchairs and seniors. This program continues today.
