SacRT Holds Open House to Discuss Future Transit Network for the Sacramento Region

November 12, 2018 RT News

Sacramento, CA – The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) will host a community open house on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, to consider the future of transit in the Sacramento region. Over the last year, SacRT has done tremendous work listening and engaging with the public to re-imagine a future transit network called SacRT Forward that will keep the region moving.

The ultimate goal of SacRT Forward is to provide transit service to destinations where people want to go. The community open house will provide an opportunity for the public to provide additional feedback on what the final transit network will look. The Sacramento region is experiencing unprecedented growth and SacRT wants to make sure that it exceeds the mobility needs through proactive and innovative transit planning that will connect more people to more places.

“Our transit system has not been redesigned in 30 years and travel patterns have substantially changed since then,” said SacRT General Manager/CEO Henry Li. “We have been actively working with key stakeholders to seek the community’s input on what type of network will work best for their lifestyle. It’s much more than changing bus routes or adding frequency, this is about re-imagining what mobility means for the Sacramento region.”

More information on the draft alternatives is available at sacrtforward.com.
