Sustainable Transportation Emissions Program (STEP)

STEP is a program of the Solano Transportation Authority (STA). The STA is committed to continually improving Solano County’s transportation system so that our residents have easy access to jobs, schools, shopping, and essential services. To that end, the STA – working with each of the cities and the county – plans, funds, manages and delivers a wide array of activities designed to keep Solano moving. While delivering transportation projects to ensure mobility, travel safety, and economic vitality is the STA’s mission, preserving and improving the quality of life enjoyed by Solano County residents underscores all that we do.

You can also read about our options for commuters online at solanomobility.org/employer or contact Program Coordinator Katelyn Costa: 707-399-3218 or [email protected] .  STA will walk your organization through the design and implementation of a commuter benefits program for your workplace at no cost to you.
