We provide safe, reliable, courteous, efficient, and accessible transportation services that effectively link people, jobs, and communities
Solano County Transit (SolTrans) is a Joint Powers Authority that provides public transportation to the southern Solano County cities of Vallejo and Benicia.
The SolTrans joint powers agreement was approved in the Fall of 2010 by the City of Benicia, the City of Vallejo, and the Solano Transportation Authority to build a unified public transit system in southern Solano County. On Friday, July 1, 2011, SolTrans officially took over the public transit programs from the cities of Vallejo and Benicia.
The decision to move towards consolidation of these two transit operators could not have taken shape without the leadership of both communities being willing to come together and make tough, and at the time unpopular decisions, but with the best interests of their cities and constituents in mind.
SolTrans provides local and express bus service to the Solano County cities of Vallejo, Benicia and Fairfield, with express bus service connecting to the Contra Costa County communities of El Cerrito, Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek, regional connections to BART.
In addition to fixed route service, SolTrans provides ADA complementary paratransit bus service, general public dial-a-ride service within Benicia, and administers Local and Intercity Taxi Scrip Programs. Solano County’s Intercity Taxi Scrip Program is an innovative, award winning program that provides direct service between cities in Solano County for ambulatory ADA Paratransit qualified individuals.
