NEW SOLTRANS ROUTE
Solano County Transit (SolTrans) added a pilot bus service to the San Francisco Ferry Terminal in early December in response to public requests for increased bus service from Vallejo to San Francisco.
The new pilot bus departures connect Vallejo to San Francisco during peak commute hours. The trips will operate on weekdays from the Vallejo Transit Center (VTC), serving El Cerrito del Norte BART and then on to San Francisco Ferry Terminal on the Embarcadero before returning to Vallejo.
To encourage riders to try the new service, the 6:15 a.m. departure from VTC to San Francisco will be free to Feb. 1. All other Route 82 trips will be the regular posted fare – Adult $10, Youth $8 and Reduced $5.
The Route 82 pilot schedule consists of one early morning roundtrip that will depart the VTC at 6:15 a.m. and arrive at the Ferry Terminal just after 7 a.m. and an afternoon round trip that will depart VTC at 4:15 p.m. towards San Francisco and leave the San Francisco Ferry Terminal at 5:45 p.m.
SolTrans continues to offer its late-evening northbound Route 82 departure from San Francisco at 10:29 p.m., which is the last direct connection to Solano County from San Francisco.
