Field Trip Program
SMART Field Trip Program
SMART is excited to announce a new Field Trip Program for local students and educators. For groups who participate in this program, students ride free and adults pay regular fare.
- Students ride free, adults pay regular fares
- Field trips must travel on non-peak trains. Trips 9, 4, and 24 cannot generally accommodate field trips, for travel on these trips
- Trips must be pre-arranged with SMART staff to ensure capacity and establish a point of contact for support
- SMART staff can offer support to the teachers with trip planning
- Teachers will receive field trip passes to distribute to the students prior to the trip as proof of participation onboard the train
To arrange a field trip with SMART, please email Samantha Frias at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide details about the group trip you are planning.
SMART can also arrange a “Train Only” trip option with a SMART talk by Community Outreach staff at the Larkspur or Sonoma County Airport Station.
