SolTrans and Local Partners Come Together for their Community

Robert Briseno

SolTrans understands how news of the COVID-19 virus is causing stress and anxiety, especially as it relates to travel and public spaces. They cannot stress enough how important it is for individuals to take precautions and responsibility for their own well-being to help slow the spread of this virus.

Considering our current situation, it’s nice to share good news and share community hero stories. Earlier this week Fairfield’s Heretic Brewing Company took their distilling expertise and created alcohol-based hand sanitizer to help with the huge demand for sanitizer. They not only sold the “Germ Juice” to the public but also were able to get 5 gallons to SolTrans for operators and staff. SolTrans then purchased individual bottles for each operator’s personal use.

“Our team is so grateful to Heretic Brewery for supplying this much needed hand sanitizer. Our drivers and other transit workers are on the front line and their safety and personal welfare is of our utmost importance. We are asking everyone that can stay home please do but if you need transportation, we are here to take you to your destination safely.” Said Beth Kranda, SolTrans Executive Director.

Community partnering did not stop there! Solano County Public Health also came to the rescue this week with medical face masks for the SolTrans staff. The SolTrans team is practicing social distancing and staying healthy to keep their essential community members moving. Please remember to only use public transit when necessary and adhere to the new travel policies:

  • Stay six feet apart from the bus operators and fellow riders while boarding and riding the bus.
  • Board at the rear doors on local buses. Those who need assistance from the ramp may board at the front doors, please signal the operator.
  • Do not travel if you have a cough, fever or do not feel well.
  • Drivers may enforce reduced capacity on the buses for the safety of other riders. Customers showing flu-like symptoms may be denied boarding, to safeguard the health of our operators and other riders.

Please continue to refer to Solano County Public health websites for updated information pertaining to the virus. We will continue to provide updates as information is made available to us. Thank you for your patience and your partnership.
