SolTrans Cuts Ribbon at Curtola Transit Hub

Solano County Transit (SolTrans) in Vallejo, CA, held ribbon-cutting ceremonies Oct. 14 to mark the completion of the renovated Curtola Park & Ride Hub, scheduled to open before the end of 2015.

The agency explained that the hub is not yet ready to open because the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has been busy dealing with multiple fires in the area and has not yet completed the final electrical hookup.

Executive Director Mona Babauta said, “We are excited to see this project come to completion and for the commuting public to once again use the site to get to and from work each day. However, we are not going to lose sight of the critical work PG&E has to do first so that those affected by the fires can get back into their homes. We are not going to press PG&E to make the final connections until they have the manpower available to do so. We appreciate our customers’ patience as PG&E returns service and infrastructure to the communities affected by this disaster.”

Once open, the site will provide expanded parking and such amenities as electrical vehicle charging stations, new casual carpool loading and unloading areas, a ticket sales office and vending kiosk, security cameras, LED lighting and passenger waiting areas with weather protection.

Dignitaries, including SolTrans Executive Director Mona Babauta, third from left, California State Sen. and Majority Whip Lois Wolk, in light suit; Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA), behind Wolk; and Osby Davis, Vallejo mayor and SolTrans chairperson, holding scissors, participate in ribbon-cutting ceremonies at the renovated Curtola Park & Ride Hub.
