No gasoline in Point Reyes Station for the next 4-6 days!

From the Marin County Sheriff:

Due to a vehicle accident that occurred last night where a truck ran

into the Greenbridge Gas & Auto Service station located at 11401

Highway 1, Point Reyes Station, the station suffered major damage that

has disabled the power to all of its gas pumps. The owners of the

Greenbridge Gas & Auto Service are now advising that the gas pumps

will remain inoperable for another 4-6 days until repairs can be


This closure of the Greenbridge gas pumps in Point Reyes will mean

the only other operating gas pumps in West Marin will be at the Bo-Gas

station in Bolinas. Due to the warm days leading up to this coming

weekend, I anticipate that we can expect a number of stranded

motorists expressing frustration in our West Marin Communities with

empty or near empty gas tanks. Even those who may call for road

service (AAA, etc.) can expect extremely long response times from

service vehicles and tow trucks coming from the East side of the


I share this info so that you can better prepare yourself for the

next few days depending on how this may impact your daily routines and

calls for assistance. We here at the Sheriff’s Office have already

had over ten (10) walk-ins today at the Point Reyes Public Safety

Building with people frantically searching for gas, again this will

only get worse this weekend. I have already asked our local radio

station (KWMR) to begin to spread the word to their local listeners

and have talked to AAA in San Rafael about the possibility of ramping

up the number of service vehicles in West Marin this weekend to

address their increased number of calls for service. I will also be

reaching out to County DPW and Caltrans to see if any signage can be

displayed on a couple of the major roadways leading out to West Marin

to warn those heading out West of the limited gas available.  

 Information on Bo-Gas is attached to this message.   Please apprise

your guests who might be coming from out of town this weekend.
