Healdsburg Shuttle – Partner of Sonoma County Transit

The City of Healdsburg has approved funding to subsidize fares for all riders on Route 67, the “Healdsburg Shuttle,” for a two-year period beginning July 1, 2018.

The Shuttle operates on weekdays between the hours of 8:40am and 4:10pm and operates North and South loops whose terminus is the Safeway Shopping Center. The route connects the shopping center with downtown Healdsburg/Healdsburg Plaza, the Senior Center, central, northern and southern Healdsburg neighborhoods.

The Healdsburg Shuttle is free for all riders under Sonoma County Transit’s “Fare-Free” program.   The Healdsburg Shuttle’s “Fare-Free” program is subsidized by the City of Healdsburg.

The new “Fare-Free” program is designed to make using local transit services easier and to encourage hop-on, hop-off, travel without the need to pay a fare.

The City of Santa Rosa takes pride in providing high quality, safe, reliable and courteous transportation service. Santa Rosa Paratransit is highly subsidized. The one-way paratransit fare of $3.00 (which is double the adult fixed-route fare) covers a very small fraction of the overall cost of the trip, which is approximately $30 per one-way trip.

The City of Santa Rosa monitors, manages, sells tickets and generally ensures a high-quality paratransit service.
