Options are more limited coming from Marin. Your two choices are:

1 - Golden Gate Transit (bus) to SF
2 - Ferry from Larkspur to SF (would involve driving or taking the bus to Larkspur)

ive done a little reading this evening on it- it seems there are buses running from santa rosa to san francisco from early in the morning all the way to about 1230 pm and that from novato to s.f. would cost me about 6.50 - anyone ever ridden/ride this bus, and if so, experiences/thoughts?

thanks

Never ridden it but I always see Golden Gate transit buses in the SF downtown area. They seem quite plentiful..

10 years ago I took the bus and ferries to/from San Rafael. Assuming nothing's changed, the buses are clean, comfortable and not crowded. For morning commute I would recommend the commuter buses that don't stop everywhere as they'll get you to work quicker. If you go straight home from work, then take them again, but if you want to stay in the city at night, then you have the option to take any number of buses that leave at all hours going north, but those take longer as they stop everywhere. The ferry is a great way to commute as well. When i took the ferry I'd sleep in the morning and read on the way back (I can't read on a bus), on a nice day the ferry coming home is really fun, because you can have a drink and stand outside and enjoy the view which is pretty spectacular.
