The Windsor Shuttle is free for all riders under Sonoma County Transit’s “Fare-Free” program. The Windsor Shuttle’s “Fare-Free” program is subsidized by the Town of Windsor.
In addition to local service, Sonoma County Transit’s Route 60 provides intercity service that connects Windsor with Healdsburg and Cloverdale to the north, and downtown Santa Rosa to the south. In downtown Santa Rosa (Third Street Transit Mall), transfers to other Sonoma County Transit Routes, local Santa Rosa CityBus services and regional services provided by Golden Gate Transit can be made. Route 60 operates daily.

On Thursday nights through September 6, Sonoma County Transit provides a free shuttle (Route 66X) between the Town Green, Windsor Depot and the Windsor High School parking lot. Combined with the Shuttle, use of the High School parking lot provides a convenient alternative to parking in the immediate Town Green area. The Shuttle operates between 5 & 9pm.
Initially, SMART will operate between its Airport Blvd. station (north Santa Rosa) and its southern terminus in downtown San Rafael.
