Riding Together: Bay Area Healthy Transit Plan
Since May 2020, Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST) has worked closely with twenty-four (24) Bay Area public transportation providers, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), and an MTC-established Blue Ribbon Transit Recovery Task Force, to implement minimum health and safety mitigations to protect transportation riders and employees from COVID-19 transmission. These collaborative efforts resulted in creation of a Riding Together: Bay Area Healthy Transit Plan. The approved resolution can be found here, endorsing FAST’s commitment and participation in this Plan.
You can find the full agenda report submitted to the City of Fairfield Council here.
FAST is in close communications with the City of Fairfield Fire Department and Solano County Health Department to provide updates to our passengers. FAST staff prioritizes the safety and health of our passengers and have taken preventative precautions with the likely continued spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. Here’s what we’re doing to help keep our customers and employees healthy and safe.
NOTE: The Fairfield Transportation Center is now closed to the public. However, FAST administrative staff is available at (707) 434-3800 during regular business hours from 8AM to 5PM Monday to Friday (excluding the first and third Fridays of the month) to answer your questions. The Transit Store will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
COVID-19: FAST and SolanoExpress Fare Updates
During this COVID-19 crisis, FAST is implementing new operational procedures to promote social distancing measures that will help “flatten the curve” and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
FAST will not require fare on FAST local and paratransit service.
This temporary measure is meant to eliminate passenger interaction with fareboxes and reduce close contact between drivers and passengers. Don’t forget, passengers riding FAST Local routes can enter and exit through the rear doors of the buses (except those needing assistance via the ramp) and are encouraged to practice social distancing by sitting six feet away from the drivers and each other.
