SolTrans Requests Public Feedback: COA Proposed Local Route and Service Changes

On Monday, January 21, 2019 SolTrans released the Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA): Proposed Local Route and Service Changes with a request for public comments. The proposed changes affect Routes 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 20, as well as Benicia General Public Dial-A-Ride and include a proposal to increase service hours on local routes until 9:00 p.m. weekdays.

The route and service proposals are the result of a comprehensive study that began in July 2018. The proposed changes are a result of three working papers that began with a study of the demographics of Benicia and Vallejo, an analysis of the productivity of current local service with public input gathered from various meetings held last summer, and a proposal of service alternatives.

SolTrans would like to invite the public to comment on the proposed route and service changes during the public comment period between January 21st and March 21st, 2019. Information about the proposed changes can be found by clicking COA: Proposed Route and Service Change, Request for Public Comment from the SolTrans website homepage. A summary is available in print from the Vallejo Transit Center Ticket office at 311 Sacramento Street, Vallejo.

To learn about and comment on the proposed changes, attend a Community Meeting workshop at fixed meeting locations within Benicia and Vallejo or talk with staff on the bus during one of the many Bus Town Hall rides.  A list of available workshops can be found from the Community Meetings link from the website page mentioned above.  Information about the changes may be obtained, or comments submitted, by emailing, calling Customer Service at 707-648-4666, or by completing the comment form at the bottom of each page of the website.
