By popular demand, I’ve reworked the Highway 101 Strip Map into a printable version and added a timetable. Print this out (pdf) and stick in on your wall, shove it in your (man) purse, or gloat to friends that you actually know where you’re going. Because you deserve it. If you’re a bus driver, defy your superiors and put this on display where passengers can see it when doing a 101 run. Seriously, they’ll thank you.
The timetable, also available in Excel here so you can rejigger/resize it as you please, gives how to get from A to B along the 101 corridor. Choose your start on the left and look over until you hit the proper destination. It shows which routes take you there and how often to expect a bus. Not only is it useful for travelling the system, it lays bare the overlapping frequencies. You don't need to know that the next Route 70 bus leaves; you need to know when the next bus for Marin City leaves, and that could be one of a half-dozen routes.
Guides like this one are extremely useful for complicated, but important, pieces of transit infrastructure. Combining all the routes together to form a single bus system from top to bottom is what makes 101 the trunk line that it is. Leaving it unmapped, as GGT and Marin Transit have done, simply hides from the public how much transit is actually available to use. Transit doesn't do anyone any good when hidden in a box.
