We’re Riding Smart!
Russell A. Colombo
Former President & CEO, Bank of Marin
As a major North Bay employer with offices across Marin and Sonoma counties, we are focused on commute alternatives for our employees, many of whom make the laborious commute on Hwy 101 every day. With the high cost of living in Marin, we rely heavily on hiring from Sonoma County.
We are committed to making SMART an integral part of improving that commute by offering a morning shuttle from the Hamilton Station to our Novato headquarters using a vehicle that Bank of Marin purchased with this purpose in mind We also offer an Uber Rideshare program for the afternoon commute to Hamilton and $50/month reimbursement to those employees that purchase a SMART monthly pass.
Additionally, Bank of Marin has representatives that chair the Oversight committees for both SMART and TAM Measure A funds. We hope our commitment inspires other major employers in Marin to help ease congestion by encouraging their employees to use SMART.
