Press Release: FREE Island Getaway! On the Mare Island Shuttle


VALLEJO, CA—SolTrans is pleased to announce that beginning on Saturday January 14, 2017 the temporary service, known as the “Mare Island (MI) Shuttle,” will be FREE until February 14, 2017. This promotion will provide the public the opportunity to experience the shuttle first hand and utilize it to explore Mare Island.

The team at SolTrans wants to ensure that the community is familiar with this route during its test as it is set to expire on February 28, 2017. The public is encouraged to not only ride the shuttle but to provide feedback about the service as well, via an online survey card on the SolTrans website at:

The Mare Island Route is a promotional temporary demonstration service which will allow staff to collect information on ridership levels and determine whether to make it a part of the fixed route service.
Continued planning of the service has kept the staff working closely with stakeholders on the Island to identify bus schedules and key destinations such as the Veterans Affairs Hospital, Touro University, the Vallejo Unified School District Offices, and the Global Center for Success.

“We hope to see more people jump on the bus during this promotional period.” said Mandi Renshaw, SolTrans Program Analyst I.

To make access to the service easier for Veterans and seniors (over the age of 60) the MI Shuttle will be free throughout the entire promotional period with proper identification.
For schedule times and locations, visit or call (707) 648-4666.
