Why Choose CarHop?
From local buses to BART and ferry service, you have several public transit options available here in Vallejo. While these various transportation services may offer routes that will get you around town, out to nearby Benicia or Carquinez Heights, or even across the Bay, you’ll have to adjust your travel according to their schedules, not your own. That’s why, with all there is do in town, many Vallejo residents prefer the freedom that comes from owning a car. Here at CarHop, we offer a wide selection of used cars, trucks, and SUVs, all in top condition and affordably priced. Best of all, we also offer the convenience of Buy Here Pay Here financing in Vallejo, which provides an easy, hassle-free way to get behind the wheel of the high-quality used car you want today.

Public Transportation in Vallejo, CA
- Soltrans: They offer 9 local bus routes, as well as 2 routes dedicated to local schools and 3 express bus routes to Benecia/Walnut Creek, El Cerrito, and Fairfield. Soltrans also offers ADA Paratransit bus service, Dial-a-Ride service, and a local taxi scrip service. The local fare for adults is $1.75, while children ages 6 to 18 can ride for $1.50. Express and out of county bus fares range from $2.75 to $10.00. While fairly affordable, when using the bus service, you have to factor in when and where the buses are running, not to mention wait time and travel time. Suffice it to say that it can get complicated, even if you’re just looking to travel across town.
- BART: There is no direct BART service to or from Vallejo, though Soltrans provides buses that will get you to the El Cerrito Del Norte and Walnut Creek BART stations. BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a train service that stretches as far east as Antioch, south along the East Bay corridor to Fremont, as well as to San Francisco, Daly City, and Millbrae. Fares run from $1.95 to $15.70. Trains run every 15 minutes during the weekdays from 4 a.m. to midnight. Saturday service is from 6 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday it is available from 8 a.m. to midnight. On nights and weekends, the trains run every 20 minutes. However, just getting to a BART station from Vallejo will take you 20 minutes to an hour. When you add in the restrictive schedule, it’s really not a very convenient or reliable method of travel.
- Amtrak: The Vallejo Amtrak stop is at the Denny’s Restaurant at 4355 Sonoma Boulevard. You must arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled departure, and there is no station and no shelter while you’re waiting for the next train. While Amtrak can get you to many locations out of town, it’s not an option for local travel.
- San Francisco Bay Ferry: Ferry service is available between Vallejo and the San Francisco Ferry building, Pier 41, and AT&T Park. Ferries departing from Vallejo run from 5:30 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekends. The trip to SF takes an hour. A one-way fare is $14.60 for an adult and $7.30 for youths between the ages of 5 and 18. Synching up with transportation on the San Francisco side can be a little tricky at times, and with service stopping in the early evening, taking the ferry often isn’t the best option.
