Sonoma County Airport is a Sonoma–Marin Area Rail Transit train station in Santa Rosa. It opened to preview service on July 1, 2017;[3] full commuter service commenced on August 25, 2017. Until Phase 2 is completed, this will be the northern terminus of rail service on the line. Phase 1 was originally to extend only to Santa Rosa North, but in 2013 the MTC approved the addition of the airport station adjacent to the SMART Operations and Maintenance Facility.[4]

Commute-hour timed-transfer buses connect commuters from as far north as Cloverdale station twice a day in each direction on Sonoma County Transit Line 56.[5] Line 55 offers timed transfers connecting the train to the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport and to the town of Windsor eight times daily.[6]
