Public Transit

Sonoma State University is proud to partner with Sonoma County Transit to provide free bus service to all SSU students! This transportation subsidy is paid, in part, with parking fine revenue as part of our alternative transportation programming. There are no special passes needed, just show your current student identification. The SSU campus is served by routes providing local service within Rohnert Park and Cotati (route 10) and intercity routes providing connections to the campus from Sebastopol (routes 26 and 52), Petaluma (route 44) and Santa Rosa (routes 44 and 46). Routes 26, 44, 46 and 52 provide service between the campus and the Cotati SMART station on East Cotati Avenue.

For more information, please visit the Sonoma County Transit webpage to plan your trip. For real-time bus arrival information, download the “NextBus” app available on the Apple App store or Google play

Amtrak also provides a 15% discount to SSU students and provides service from Martinez to Arcata. Please visit the Amtrak San Joaquins Route 7 website for details.
