(BCN) -- The National Park Service and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency have partnered to expand bus service to the Marin Headlands.
Muni route 76 has been expanded to include Saturdays and Sundays, and will be renamed the 76X Marin Headlands Express, the transportation agency said. The route will begin at the Montgomery BART station in San Francisco and make limited stops in the city.
"This is an exciting advancement for our commitment to reducing the carbon impact of these parks on the Bay Area, and our dedication to serving the public," Golden Gate National Recreation Area superintendent Frank Dean said in a release.
As part of limiting the stops in San Francisco, the 76X discontinues the portion of the route south of Market Street to Caltrain to address reliability issues, the agency said.
The 76X is a 24-month pilot program.
