SolTrans, officially Solano County Transit, is a Joint Powers Authority that provides public transportation service to the southern Solano County cities of Vallejo and Benicia. SolTrans was established in 2011 and is the result of a merger between Vallejo Transit and Benicia Breeze.
SolTrans provides local and express bus service to the Solano County cities of Vallejo, Benicia, and Fairfield, California. It also provides express bus service to the Contra Costa County communities of El Cerrito, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek, providing regional connections to BART. SolTrans also provides complementary ADA paratransit.
Ferry service from Vallejo to San Francisco, which was operated by Vallejo Transit, is now provided by San Francisco Bay Ferry, the public operating arm of the San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority [WETA].
SolTrans connects with the following public transit services:
- AC Transit
- County Connection (Contra Costa)
- Fairfield and Suisun Transit
- Golden Gate Transit
- San Francisco Bay Ferry
- Vine Transit (Napa)
- WestCAT (Contra Costa)
As of 18 August 2012, SolTrans operates eighteen bus routes. Eight routes operate within Vallejo, four serve as supplemental routes for local school students in Vallejo and Benicia, and five are intercity routes with one being a supplemental shuttle bus for Baylink Ferry service. General transit within Benicia is provided through a SolTrans-branded dial-a-ride service. Unless otherwise noted, routes operate weekdays and Saturday.

Fleet and livery 
SolTrans operates a mixed fleet of buses. When SolTrans was consolidated in 2011, they introduced Gillig Low Floor hybrid buses for local bus service,  while the intercity routes continue to use MCI D-4500 buses. Since rebranding, Orion V buses previously used by Vallejo Transit became exclusive for school routes. SolTrans also makes use of Starcraft Bus Starlite shuttles for Paratransit and Dial-a-ride services. All buses are bicycle and wheelchair accessible.
