Changes to the Taxi Scrip Program are coming July 2018!
The changes include a Pre-Paid debit card that will take the place of the current paper scrip booklets and, the availability of accessible vehicles that will accommodate non-ambulatory riders. Both the Pre-Paid debit card model and the non-ambulatory component will be phased in beginning with the Solano County Transit (SolTrans) which serves Benicia and Vallejo residents. The remaining cities will follow starting with Dixon (Readi-Ride) and Rio Vista (Delta Breeze), then Fairfield and Suisun (FAST) and finally Vacaville (CityCoach). All ADA eligible residents will be contacted about the changes via direct mail.
