PRESS RELEASE: Ride FREE With Vallejo Art Walk Passport

Art Walk Press Release

March 18, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SolTrans supports the Arts in Vallejo with FREE bus rides to the Art Walk

Vallejo, CA – Did you know that there is an ever growing artist community in Vallejo? Did you know that EVERY 2nd Friday of the month they put on an event called Art Walk in Downtown Vallejo? You can even meet some of these wonderful artists and experience their works. And SolTrans can help you get to and from the event and around it…for FREE.

In an effort to support the community and the arts in Vallejo, SolTrans will be offering free rides every 2nd Friday of the month on April (10th), May (8th), June (12th), July (10th) and August (14th) from 4 PM until the last bus of the evening (local fixed routes only) just by showing your “Art Passport” for the event. You can get your passport at the Soltrans website (www.SolTransRide.com) or at the Vallejo Art Walk website (www.VallejoArtWalk.com).

The acting Planning and Operations Manager of SolTrans, Elizabeth Romero had this to say about the Art Walk; “SolTrans is about getting people where they want to go. By making it easier and more convenient to attend events, we hope to inspire people in the community to come out and experience new events like Art Walk. We don’t want to just get you to work or to school…we want to get you out and about. We’re excited to be a part of Art Walk and other great upcoming events in both Benicia and Vallejo, and hope to take our riders to new places!”

Come join SolTrans at the next Art Walk and maybe you will help discover the next artist to come out of the San Francisco Bay Area or at least find that piece that will help make your house a home.
