We need your input!

The Solano Transportation Authority's (STA) Comprehensive Transportation Plan is being updated. "Solano 2040" is being developed with input from our member agencies and the community. The Plan identifies and prioritizes the transportation needs and funding throughout Solano County for the next 25 years.
