SacRT Offers Free Ride Day for Kings’ Season Opener
October 18, 2017 – SACRAMENTO, CA –The Kings season opener against the Houston Rockets is cause for celebration, and that’s why the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) will offer a Free Ride Day to those attending the game on Wednesday, October 18. SacRT is encouraging people to leave their car behind and take light rail for more convenient and hassle free transportation to the arena. The free rides will primarily benefit regional riders traveling to the games.
Passengers traveling on SacRT’s Blue Line and Gold Line need only to present a valid Kings ticket in order to enjoy a free light rail ride for the season opening game. To make the trip even easier, SacRT customer assistance staff will be on-hand at several key light rail stations (Roseville Road, Franklin, Sunrise and Watt/Manlove) to help new riders navigate the light rail system.
“We are pleased and encouraged by the growing number of riders who are opting to take transit to the arena from all over the Sacramento region,” said Henry Li, SacRT General Manager/CEO. “With 43 miles of light rail linking 22 park-and-ride lots located throughout the north, south, and east Sacramento corridors, traveling by light rail has never been easier and our customers are giving us very positive feedback.“
