Solano Transportation Authority traffic congestion

The Solano Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP 2030/2035)

The STA's Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP 2030) for Solano County envisions, directs, and prioritizes the transportation needs of Solano County through the year 2030. The CTP incorporates various STA studies and plans into a 25-year planning document.

The CTP 2030 was adopted by the STA Board of Directors on June 8th, 2005. Access the 2005 CTP 2030 documents.

In 2008, the STA Board authorized an update to the Solano CTP.  The update will include current inventories – State of the System reports – for each of the 3 CTP Elements, and will set long-term goals that identify how STA’s transportation system should work.  The new plan will cover the 2009-2035 time period. Access the 2009 CTP 2035 Update documents.

STA is now seeking public comments on the Draft CTP Project List. We want to know if there are projects that should be on the list that are not, if there are projects that donít improve county-wide transportation, or if a project should be expanded. STA is accepting comments on the draft project list through our web site, and at the following public meetings:

  • Arterials Committee on January 20 at 1:30 p.m.
  • Transit Committee on January 25th at 10:00 a.m.
  • Alternative Modes Committee on January 25th at 1:30 p.m.
  • SolanoExpress Consortium meeting on February 24th at 10:00 a.m.
  • STA Technical Advisory Committee meeting on February 24th at 1:30 p.m.
  • STA Board meeting on March 10th at 6:00 p.m.

Arterials, Highways and Freeways Element

The goal of this element is to develop a balanced transportation system that reduces congestion and improves access and travel choices through the enhancement of roads.

This element describes the existing and future needs for the major arterials, highways, and freeways in Solano. Identified through comprehensive outreach efforts and studies are specific local and regional improvement needs, costs, and available funding information for use by decision makers gauging potential funding shortfalls.

Incoporated Studies and Plans:

Transit Element


The goal of this element is to develop a Comprehensive Transit System for buses, rail and ferries to meet future demand.

If given adequate funding, the Transit Element proposes to double the number of daily transit trips in 25 years. It does this by expanding the coverage of service, increasing frequencies, improving the quality of service and enhancing access to various transit services such as intercity bus, commuter rail, baylink ferry, and paratransit.

These improvements are proposed to increase daily ridership of intercity transit services from 6,000 today to approximately 12,000 by year 2030.

Incorporated Studies and Plans:

Alternative Modes Element

The goal of this element is to emphasize that alternative transportation modes are an integral part of travel and commuting in Solano County by implementing and maintaining a transportation system that provides for transit integration and ensuring that alternative modes are convenient, safe, efficient, and cost effective.

This element focuses on a wide range of proposals from ridesharing to bike routes, pedestrian trails, downtown revitalization projects and related transportation for livable community/enhancement projects, and alternative fuels infrastructure.

This Alternative Modes Element is intended to be innovative with regard to encouraging alternative modes of transportation and proactive by supporting a set of projects and programs, that when developed will meet the goals of this element and the CTP 2030. In recent years, STA member jurisdictions have made substantial progress in encouraging the use of alternative transportation modes.
