Recommended Arrival Stations

  • Passengers riding to downtown on the Blue Line from Citrus Heights/Roseville should exit the train at the 10th & K Station.
  • Passengers riding to downtown on the Blue Line from south Sacramento/Elk Grove should exit the train at the 9th & K Station.
  • Passengers riding to downtown on the Gold Line from Folsom/Rancho Cordova should exit the train at the 8th & K Station.
  • Remember, light rail trains operate on one-way streets in downtown, so you need to board return trains in a different location than where you exited.
  • During regular light rail operating service, people will be able to board SacRT's regularly scheduled service trains.
  • Six supplemental trains will be added on event night. That means approximately 10 trains will be operating post-event (end of game and/or last encore) from downtown stations for a one-hour period traveling in all directions (north, south and east).
  • When an event ends after SacRT's regular service hours, SacRT will operate special service trains for one hour post-event (end of game and/or last encore). Depending on demand, this will be two to three trains during that time period for each direction of travel (north, south and east).
  • Light rail service ends around 11 p.m. to midnight depending on the light rail line. SacRT will hold one train that will travel in each direction for up to one hour post-event; however, the first train will depart once it's full. A four-car light rail train can carry 600 to 800 passengers.

Recommended Departure Stations

SacRT staff will be onsite to assist passengers at the three main outbound light rail stations: 7th & Capitol Station (Blue Line service to Cosumnes River College), 7th & I/County Center Station (Gold Line service to Sunrise/Folsom) and 9th & K Station (Blue Line service to Watt/I-80).

  • Passengers taking the Blue Line toward Citrus Heights/Roseville should board trains at the 9th & K Station.
  • Passengers taking the Blue Line toward south Sacramento/Elk Grove should board trains at the 7th & Capitol Station.
  • Passengers taking the Gold Line to Rancho Cordova/Folsom stations need to board trains at the 7th & I/County Center Station.

In order to make it easy for riders to board the correct train on the return trip, SacRT has designated one station for each direction of travel as noted above. Please note that Gold Line passengers traveling eastbound toward Rancho Cordova/Folsom will not be able to board trains at the 7th & Capitol Station on Golden 1 Center event days/nights.
