SacRT Forward: FREE rides on all buses and light rail trains offered by Sacramento Regional Transit in Sacramento, California [#SacRTForward #SacRT #Sacramento]

Sacramento’s main transit agency unveiled the biggest bus route redesign in its history, including extended service hours and more coordination between buses and light rail trains.

The project, called SacRT Forward, is part of a multiyear effort by the Sacramento Regional Transit District to modernize its service and operations in hopes of giving transit a stronger role regionally as the core metro area of Sacramento becomes denser and its freeways and main commuter routes more crowded.

“This is much more than changing bus routes; this is about reimagining what mobility means for the diverse communities in which we serve and getting people to places they want to go.”
– SacRT General Manager Henry Li said.

The agency is offering FREE rides on all buses and light rail trains Sunday, September 9, 2019 through Wednesday, September 11, 2019.

You must call the Transit office to schedule a ride. Drivers are not allowed to schedule passenger rides from the bus.
