50th Anniversary Information – FOR SACRT EMPLOYEES

May 1, 2023 General

Moving the Sacramento Region for 50 Years 

April 1, 2023 marked SacRT’s 50th anniversary of operation, and we celebrated this important milestone by looking back at our history and celebrating what is still to come.  

To kick-off the celebration, we offered free rides on Tuesdays on fixed-route bus and light rail every Tuesday during the month of April 2023, on April 4, April 11, April 18 and April 25.   

We also hosted public pop-up events at different light rail stations and transit centers across the region during the month of April.  

More information about the 50th Anniversary is available at sacrt.com/50years

The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) is a seasoned and experienced agency with a 50-year record of public service. If you look under the hood, you’ll see why: it’s because of our employees. Our SacRT employee ranks are over 1,300 strong, some of whom have worked here for two, three, and even four decades. No celebration of our 50th anniversary in business would be possible without them. 

Here is a visit with three of the SacRT team’s longest-tenured employees, each of whom brings a distinct personality and energy to the job. And, a combined 111 years of service. Read more.
