The Solano Seniors & People with Disabilities Transportation Guide lists information for Fixed-route Transit, Paratransit Service and Reduced-Fare Taxi, as well as other transportation programs and coordinated services offered in Solano County for seniors and people with disabilities.
Fixed-Route Transit is for individuals who can walk or roll to a bus stop, and board and exit a bus with or without a mobility device.
Fixed -route transit offers a low cost tranportation alternative. All buses have lifts for wheelchairs or others who have difficulty using steps. Many buses are low-floor or kneeling for easy access.
Special programs and promotions for seniors and people with disabilities are available such as discounted fares and passes. For more information within your community contact your local transit agency:
Paratransit is an origin-to-destination transportation service for people who have disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 who are unable to use fixed-route transit services.Eligibility for origin-to-destination paratransit service is simple.
