Schellville has been a regionally important rail junction since completion of the Santa Rosa and Carquinez Railroad to Napa Junction in 1888. The Northwestern Pacific Railroad freight and train yard is located at the Schellville Depot at California State Routes 12/121 and Eighth Street East. Service along the mainline was planned to start again in July 2010, from the California Northern interchange at Schellville, north to Windsor until delays pushed the start date to 2011.[3]

Until it ended in 2014,[4] Valley of the Moon Commute Club operated a once-daily transbay express service to San Francisco via Schellville, Sonoma, El Verano, Boyes Hot Springs, Santa Rosa, and San Rafael.

Due to its low position along Sonoma Creek, the town regularly experiences flooding in high-rain years (about every 5–10 years).
