The free ride programs range from youth to super seniors. See if you are eligible for free fares in the summaries below:

Free Rides for Youth

SolTrans offers youth 18 and under FREE rides on all SolTrans Local Routes and Solano Express Lines. This pilot program, running through June 2025, aims to promote public transit access for a new generation, boost school attendance, and increase ridership.

Solano Community College Students

Solano Community College students can enjoy the same benefit of riding free by presenting a valid student ID on all SolTrans and Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST) Local services, and Solano Express Lines. This ongoing program supports students in their educational pursuits by providing reliable and cost-effective transportation options to the Fairfield and Vallejo campuses.
