The Routing Company has received a contract from Solano Transit Authority to deploy on-demand transit service. The contract includes a base of three years with two one-year options for extension, for a total of up to five years. 

With this contract, STA becomes TRC’s fourth partnership in California, following FAST Transit, Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit, and Lassen Transit. 

The Routing Company with Solano Transit Authority

STA is the agency providing public transit to more than 10,000 community riders in Solano County, California. STA operates in the region next to FAST Transit in Fairfield, California.

STA’s new on-demand service will initially be available across two communities – the City of Suisun and Rio Vista. Service is anticipated to begin late September 2023

STA is responsible for overseeing on-demand mobility technologies to support on-demand transit from Suisun City and the City of Rio Vista within Solano County. As part of the new service, STA aims to connect various microtransit services in the region, including Suisun Microtransit and Rio Vista Delta Breeze Transit’s school trip and deviated fixed route services. 

“Today we celebrate the expansion of Pingo in California, not only with a fourth partnership but one that is adjacent to existing Pingo services in Fairfield,” said James Cox, Chief Executive Officer, TRC. “This marks the first time riders can request rides with multiple transit agencies and zones using one app – Ride Pingo. Together, we’re expanding regional service, delivering greater efficiency in moving people, leveraging unmatched transit connectivity for riders, and ultimately improving the rider experience to make transit more accessible and equitable for all.”

“By fostering collaboration and innovation, we aim to create a more efficient and accessible transportation network that serves the unique needs of Rio Vista and Suisun City,” said Daryl Halls, Executive Director of the STA.
