Veterans & Active-Duty Military Ride Free
Starting on President’s Day, Monday, February 21, 2022, all US Veterans and Active-duty Military will be able to ride free of charge on all Petaluma Transit fixed-route buses. Designed to honor Petaluma’s Veteran and Active-Duty military community, the pilot program was unanimously approved by Petaluma City Council on January 24, 2022. Active-duty or veteran military members from any branch of service will now be able to ride any Petaluma Transit fixed route for free by showing proof of their military status while riding the bus. The program helps fulfill the City of Petaluma goals to advance equity by improving access, community cohesion, and well-being, and to reduce the City’s greenhouse gas emissions in efforts to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.
Riders can ride for free on all of Petaluma Transit’s fixed-route service by presenting one of the following forms of identification to their bus driver:
- Military ID Card, DD Form 2
- Valid Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) ID Card
- Active California Driver’s License with “V” status noted
- Sonoma County-issued Veteran’s ID Card
