Public Transportation

Golden Gate Transit Buses and the Blue and Gold Ferry provide service to downtown Tiburon.  However, you will need to arrange to be picked up, take a taxi, ride a bicycle or walk the remaining 2.4 miles along Paradise Drive to reach RTC itself. From downtown Tiburon, you will first encounter the 3150 Paradise Dr. gate on your right, then the 3152 gate will be 0.5 miles farther on the right.



Cycling to RTC on Paradise Drive is popular and enjoyable, as long as both bikes and cars share the road safely. Cycling to RTC can be combined with the Tiburon ferry, or Golden Gate Transit from San Francisco or North Marin. For a map of the best bike routes, go to
