The goal of the l-80/1-680/1-780 Major Investment and Corridor Study is to develop a long range, multi-modal transportation plan for the 1-80, 1-680 and 1-780 corridors in Solano County. Interstates 80, 680 and 780 form the backbone of Solano County’s roadway network. According to projections by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the population of Solano County will grow by 45 percent between 2000 and 2025, and transportation demands on the County’s freeway network are expected to increase accordingly. If transportation improvements are not pursued within the study corridors in this timeframe, forecasts predict dramatic increases in vehicular congestion and delay. These increases in vehicular congestion are projected to be the worst on the segments of 1-80 through Fairfield and Vacaville, with peak hour delays of greater than one-half hour in some sections.

The 2018 California State Rail Plan, the state’s strategic plan for creating a coordinated, statewide rail network, identified a “Solano County Hub” to link Capitol Corridor, future Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) trains, and regional buses. This report analyzed potential rail station locations along the Union Pacific Railroad/SMART corridor within Solano County to determine a recommended location for the proposed Solano County Hub. The study recommends the current location of the Suisun-Fairfield Capitol Corridor Station as the SMART-Capitol Corridor station site. In addition, the report provides a range of station options for another station site in the Cordelia area in the City of Fairfield that could be considered in the update of the City’s General Plan.

The Solano Transportation Authority (STA) offers a variety of mobility programs and services to help connect people to their destinations. STA is responsible for Countywide transportation planning, including planning for SolanoExpress service, which connects to regional services such as rail and ferry. STA strives to provide safe, convenient, and comfortable transportation options wherever you’re traveling.
To improve your traveling experience, STA is developing the Connected Mobility Implementation Plan. This Plan is being developed to identify and improve mobility options (e.g. bus, ferry, train, bike) between your home and destinations. We believe YOU are the expert on your travel needs, and we need your input! – Please tell us how we can improve your travel experience within and outside of Solano County.
Your participation matters and is a required element to secure additional funding to make this future a reality and fulfill the diverse needs of Solano County.
The STA Connected Mobility Survey is closed. The survey was open between October 2021 and March 2022.
Through this survey, we gathered valuable data on how STA can improve residents’ travel experience within and outside of Solano County.
Thank you to all who participated! Your input is incredibly valuable and will be used to help inform the Solano Connected Mobility Implementation Plan.
Join STA at these upcoming community events to learn more about the Solano Connected Mobility Implementation Plan and take the Connected Mobility survey.

The STA Board adopted the countywide Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) at the Sept. 14, 2022, meeting. The LRSP was adopted in consultation with the seven Solano cities and Solano County and will serve as a framework for organizing stakeholders to systematically identify, analyze, and prioritize roadway safety improvements on local roads. STA’s LRSP identifies high crash locations from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2020, and recommends safety treatments to reduce the frequency of future fatal and severe injury (KSI) collisions.
An LRSP (or its equivalent Systemic Safety Analysis Report [SSAR] or Vision Zero Action Plan program) is required for the cities of Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville, Vallejo, and the County of Solano to be eligible to apply for the federal Safe Streets for All (SS4A) Program and to be eligible for future Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding.
At the same Board meeting, the STA Board authorized the submittal of a grant application for the Safe Streets for All (SS4A) Program. The SS4A call-for-projects allowed local agencies to submit applications for either Action Plan Grants or Implementation Plan Grants. STA’s LRSP, in partnership with member agencies, qualifies as an Action Plan as defined by the SS4A Program. The amount authorized for FY22-23 is $1 billion for safety improvement projects that reduce KSI collisions, especially for vulnerable road uses, such as for cyclists and pedestrians.

This 2018 Solano Travel Safety Plan, funded by the Caltrans-created Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP) grant, expands the 2016 project list with projects identified through a data-driven analysis. The 2018 Travel Safety Plan is a systemic analysis of trends and patterns from the crash record that allows for system-wide identification of improvements to address observed and potential safety issues. The resulting project list and analysis will assist local agencies in prioritizing safety improvements that will qualify for Highway Safety Improvement Plan (HSIP) funding. The 2018 Travel Safety Plan will also act as a policy and guidance document to provide ongoing assistance to STA and staff from all of the Solano County jurisdictions in continuing to identify needed safety improvements as the roadway network and travel patterns continue to evolve.

Community Based Transportation Plans (CBTPs) are funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) for the Bay Area’s Equity Priority Communities, which includes most of Suisun City. The concept of the CBTP was borne out of MTC’s Lifeline Transportation Network and environmental justice efforts nearly 20 years ago. While much has changed since the release of reports from those efforts, transportation challenges remain and may become more severe unless addressed with strategic planning alternatives. Foreseeable challenges to be addressed in this CBTP include changes in the transit landscape, continued effects from COVID-19, the growth of the over 75-year-old population at a faster rate than other age cohorts, and consistently meeting mobility and accessibility needs of individuals with disabilities. In addition to people with disabilities, older adults, and low-income populations, other populations included in the Equity Priority Communities, such as people of color and zero vehicle households are incorporated as primary targets of the mobility strategies in this study.
