Come Learn About Proposed Route Improvements! We Want Your Feedback!

SolTrans System Restructuring

SolTrans is taking a comprehensive look at all of the transit system’s routes in order to improve transit service throughout southern Solano County and beyond.

Over the past year, the project has included on-board surveys, ridership counts, and a detailed analysis of how people currently use transit within Vallejo and Benicia and beyond. With the help of transit industry experts, SolTrans has put together some proposals for how service could be improved in 2015.

SolTrans staff will be out in the community and hosting open houses to hear your ideas on how our future transit network should look. We want your input!
