December 15, 2016

On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors extended the Subsidized Transit Fare Pilot-Program for Sonoma County College Students through 2017.   The 2017 program will be funded with contributions from Santa Rosa Junior College, Sonoma State University and the Sonoma County general fund.

The Subsidized Transit Fare Pilot-Program began in January, 2015 and allows Sonoma County Veterans and College Students to use Sonoma County Transit at no charge, with proper identification. In November, 2015, the Board of Supervisors took actions to make the Veterans program permanent, effective January 1, 2016.
