SacRT Holds Open Houses to get Feedback on New Bus Network

December 10, 2018 RT News

Sacramento, CA – The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) will host a series of community open houses in December to get the public’s input on newly developed bus route network options.

“Smart changes to the bus system can have a huge impact to connecting to light rail and better serving the greater Sacramento region,” said SacRT Board Chair and Sacramento County Supervisor Patrick Kennedy.

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. The open houses are the next step in the process.

“We are thrilled to be able to reveal these redesigned transit networks, which includes feedback from the people who will be using the system every day and future new riders,” said SacRT General Manager/CEO Henry Li. “This is much more than changing bus routes, this is about re-imagining what mobility means for the diverse communities in which we serve and getting people to places they want to go.”

The community open houses will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Wednesday, December 12 – SacRT Auditorium, 1400 29th Street, Sacramento (Accessible by light rail to the 29th Street Station or bus routes 38, 67 or 68)
  • Thursday, December 13 – Mills Building, 10191 Mills Station Road, Rancho Cordova (Accessible by light rail to the Mather Field/Mills Station or bus routes 21, 28, 72, 74 or 75)
  • Tuesday, December 18 – Citrus Heights Community Center, 6300 Fountain
    Square Drive, Citrus Heights (Accessible by bus routes 1, 23 and 95)
  • Thursday, December 20 – Pannell Community Center, 2450 Meadowview
    Road, Sacramento (Accessible by bus routes 47 and 56)

SacRT will also post a video open house in January for the public to comment on the proposed draft transit networks. Visit sacrtforward.com to learn more about the project.
