Vallejo Transit or VT is a public transportation service in Solano County, Californiamarker.

Services

VT provides local, express, and school bus service to the Solano County cities of Vallejomarker and Fairfieldmarker. It also provides express bus service to Contra Costa Countymarker, allowing connection to the regional Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) rail system. Service operates to the El Cerrito del Norte stationmarker in El Cerritomarker. Vallejo Transit provides a bus service for physically disabled customers, offering pick-up-from-home busing called the Vallejo Runabout. Its inter-city express buses and ferries are branded as Baylink while local buses are marketed as Vallejo Transit.

It provides ferry service south across San Pablo Baymarker and San Francisco Baymarker to San Franciscomarker's Ferry Buildingmarker. All VT ferry services operate from the Vallejo Ferry Terminalmarker in downtown Vallejo. In October 2007, State of California legislation (SB 976) initiated a State acquisition of Baylink service, which would be overseen by the San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority.

Vehicles

Local buses consist of Gillig Phantoms and Orion V High Floors, painted white with a wavy blue gradient which blends into the logo on the front end of the bus. Supplemental school routes use TMC 102-A3s. Baylink buses are MCI D-4500 buses, painted white with a wave shaped stripe separating a graphic of the San Franciscomarker skyline on rear and the Baylink logo on the front, or wrapped in advertising. All buses on both Vallejo Transit and Baylink are wheelchair accessible.
