Marin, Napa, Sonoma shuttles to San Francisco Bay Space airports look to ramp up as vacationers return to the skies

North Bay companies bringing bus travelers to and from major airports in the San Francisco Bay Area are rumbling back toward prepandemic service.

Shortly after initial home stay orders were placed, Marin Airporter switched to a reduced schedule for transporting passengers to the San Francisco International Airport on March 23, 2020, operating 20 round-trip flights every hour instead of half an hour. According to President Larry Laporte, this will change in the next few months.

“The pandemic made it pretty bad,” he said of the number of passengers per trip, including a number of flight crews that the service regularly carries. “To be honest, we were at a loss for a while to keep the employees.”

The employee-owned company kept 95% of its 130 employees on payroll during the pandemic.

The return to half-hour planning begins initially with Marin Airporter’s peak hours, going back to the airport in the morning and back in the late afternoon and late evening, Laporte said.

Another source of income for Marin Airporter is a contract with the County of Marin for the provision, operation and insurance of public transport buses on nine routes from Sausalito to Novato. The company has a few years left on the last five-year contract.

Sonoma County Airport Express plans to resume service at 3:45 a.m. next Monday, according to The Press Democrat. The company ceased service on March 22, 2020.

But it’s a breeze for airport transfers that run from Napa.

Evans Transportation is still out of service with regards to airport transfer returns due to the pandemic. A voicemail on the company’s phone line said it was closed until further notice. We currently do not have an estimated date for the reopening. “

Napa-Solano Shuttles’ DJ Singh said his company is focused on the airports in Sacramento, Oakland and San Francisco. Business is picking up slowly, but not at the pre-pandemic level.

Sandy Kaur, Napa’s airporter manager, said the company was ready to take calls to and from the San Francisco and Oakland airports.
