SolTrans to Participate in National “Get On Board” for Public Transit Campaign

SolTrans is excited to announce that they will join with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in National Get On Board Day on Thursday, April 25.

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2019 National Get On Board Day is a day that encourages people to support public transportation and showcases the benefits it brings to communities. Each weekday in the U.S., 34 million people board public transportation.

“Our riders are very important to us and we want to encourage everyone to ride with us on April 25 and join the millions of people across the nation celebrate their local public transportation. Our staff works hard to make our riders comfortable and safe and we will continue to strive to go that extra mile for them.” SolTrans Executive Director Beth Kranda said.

Public transportation is a cornerstone of local economies in urban, suburban, and rural communities. In fact, public transportation helps to make a community economically prosperous and competitive. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.

SolTrans will be offering free rides every 2nd Friday of the month on all local routes. SolTrans invites all to join the activities in downtown Vallejo on April (12th), May (10th), June (14th), July (12th), August (9th), September (13th), October (11th), November (8th), and December (13th) from 4 PM until the end of local bus service (local fixed-routes only) by showing your “Art Walk Passport” for the event.

The Art Walk is located in downtown Vallejo, a very walk-able distance from the Vallejo Transit Center.

The map showing the various stores, galleries and restaurants is available on the Art Walk’s website: vallejoartwalk.org.

Program Analyst for SolTrans, Mandi Renshaw had this to say about the Art Walk, “Our main focus at SolTrans is to encourage local ridership and to promote Vallejo’s monthly Local Artists Art Walk. By making it easier and more convenient for people to attend community events like the Art Walk, we hope to inspire people in the community to come out and experience them. We want to get you out and about in our community. We’re excited to be a part of Art Walk and other great, upcoming events in Vallejo.”

There are a couple exceptions to this promotion: the passport is not valid on SolanoExpress Routes; and Clipper riders and 31-Day pass holders should not tap their card if they are utilizing the promotion. Just present your Art Walk Passport and board.
