We ask that groups of 10 or more individuals planning to ride Petaluma Transit please provide us with a courtesy call 48 hours in advance to help us plan your trip, especially during peak travel times.

Class Pass

A class pass is a program available to schools, clubs, and other non-profit organizations that allows youth/students (5-18 years old) to travel free of charge on Petaluma Transit.  The adults in this group are responsible for paying the regular adult fare ($1.50) per trip.  We require any group(s) planning to utilize the class pass program on Petaluma Transit to please notify our dispatch office 48 hours in advance at 707-778-4460. This will help us plan your trip, especially during peak travel times.  Also, keep in mind the class pass is used on regular fixed route transit and the group must board and exit the bus together.

Transit Buddy

A transit buddy is someone who travel trains with individuals on Petaluma Transit.  The transit buddy’s client pays the appropriate fare and the transit buddy rides free when they present their Petaluma Transit Buddy Pass (each pass has the trainer’s name, picture, and expiration date).

Personal Care Attendant

A personal care attendant is an individual who provides assistance to the passenger with daily life functions and may provide assistance during the ride or at the destination. If you need assistance to travel, riding with a personal attendant is strongly encouraged.  A personal care attendant is not required to pay his/her fare and must be picked up and dropped off at the same locations as the passenger.
