FAST Connect ADA
FAST Connect ADA is the ADA paratransit complement to FAST local fixed routes. FAST Connect ADA is a demand response origin-to-destination service that operates within ¾ of a mile of FAST fixed routes. FAST Connect ADA operates during the same days and hours as local fixed routes.
FAST Connect ADA is reserved for qualifying persons with disabilities unable to board a FAST bus, access a FAST bus stop, or otherwise navigate the regular fixed route bus system due to a disability defined by the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). This does not include disabilities that only make using accessible fixed route bus service complicated or inconvenient.
Persons wishing to become ADA paratransit certified need to call the Solano Mobility Call Center at (707) 541-7184 for information and instructions on completing an evaluation. Once the applicant’s disability is evaluated, the applicant will receive a determination of eligibility within 21 calendar days. Applicants who are ADA paratransit certified will be mailed a Solano County ADA Paratransit ID Card with an explanation of the FAST Connect ADA paratransit system and instructions on how to use it. Persons eligible to ride FAST Connect ADA may also use the Local Reduced Fare Taxi Program and the Intercity Taxi Program.
Local Reduced Fare Taxi Program
The Local Reduced Fare Taxi Program is available to residents living within Fairfield city limits who are 60 years of age and older or ADA paratransit qualified. This service only operates within the Fairfield city limits. Service is provided through local taxi operators and is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, year-round.
Participating taxi providers are:
- Fairfield Cab: (707) 422-5555

If eligible, a taxi card is issued to the applicant. Applications are available at the Fairfield Transportation Center, through the mail by contacting FAST administration at (707) 434-3800, or online at fasttransit.org.
Local taxi scrip is required as payment for all local taxi trips. A book of local taxi scrip is valued at $20 and purchased by the qualified passenger for $10 through FAST. Qualified passengers may only purchase 40 books per month. Cash is not accepted as payment for trips taken under this program, and local taxi scrip may not be used for tipping drivers.
Intercity Taxi Program
The Solano County Intercity Taxi Program is a flexible option for ambulatory ADA paratransit-certified riders. Under this program, riders must be able to store mobility devices in the taxi vehicle’s trunk.
This service provides premium ADA plus, curb-to-curb, same day transportation. The intercity taxi PEX card is valid for taxi trips originating and ending within Solano County. The PEX card may be used to pay for taxi trips between cities and rural areas in Solano County but is not valid for trips within each city. The Intercity Taxi Program is in addition to paratransit services available by public transit providers throughout Solano County.
Once ADA paratransit eligibility has been determined, fares for trips under the Intercity Taxi Program must be paid using an Intercity PEX Card available by contacting the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) at (800) 535-6883. The PEX Card can only be used to pay for intercity taxi trips. ADA eligible passengers may load $100 onto the PEX Card for $40. Qualified riders may only load $400 per month.
