The STA plans, funds, and delivers active transportation infrastructure in Solano County to help people of all ages and abilities feel comfortable walking and bicycling. This page provides resources to promote walking and bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation for Solano residents.
The STA is excited to partner on Xplore Solano, a new community mobile application to find trails, parks, and open spaces in Solano County.
In partnership with the County Office of Education, cities of Fairfield and Vacaville, the Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD), Solano County Parks, and Solano Land Trust, Xplore Solano was developed through the Outerspatial mobile app, which allows digital access to trails, parks, recreation areas, events and destinations across the County.
Download the Outerspatial app and get outside today!

2020 STA Active Transportation Plan
The 2020 STA Active Transportation Plan (ATP) summarizes existing conditions for people walking and bicycling in Solano and provides a recommended network and specific projects which STA and Solano jurisdictions can use to better support active mobility across the county. The Solano ATP is used as the basis from which future bike and pedestrian projects are selected and prioritized by STA for grant funding sources, such as Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3.
In May 2022, the STA amended the original ATP plan to include 39 new projects submitted by each individual jurisdiction. The ATP amendment also adds the countywide SR2S projects list to the ATP projects list, establishing consistency between both documents.
The ATP reports can be found here:
