Whistlestop began serving Marin County with specialized transportation in 1969. In  partnership with Marin Access, Whistlestop serves residents with special transportation needs in Marin County, and individuals traveling to or through Marin from the surrounding counties of San Francisco, Sonoma, and Contra Costa. With a current fleet of 60 vehicles, Whistlestop is able to provide over 500 trips a day to those unable to use public transportation. Our hardworking, dedicated staff is committed to providing the best service possible.  We act as a lifeline and help our clients maintain their independence by transporting them to medical appointments, stores, friends, family and more, keeping  them connected with anywhere they need to go.

I am a ‘seasoned’ disabled paratransit passenger in other cities in California. I recently had my first rides with Whistlestop, and NEVER have I been handled with such care, sensitivity and in such a professional way. Your sister services can certainly learn from you and your team. THANK YOU!”
