Fleet

The Golden Gate Transit bus system currently carries over 3 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.

The current fleet includes 40-foot hybrid diesel/electric and clean diesel buses, 35-foot electric buses, and 45-foot clean diesel buses.
