SacRT is working with the City of Elk Grove to bring the city’s transit services into the district as a member entity effective Thursday, July 1, 2021.
SacRT has been operating e-tran and e-van services under a service contract since July 2019. Under the annexation agreement, SacRT will provide fixed-route local, commuter and paratransit services, and maintenance operations for Elk Grove.
By annexing into the SacRT District, Elk Grove will benefit from SacRT’s transit expertise as the largest public transit provider in the region. Mutual goals for annexation include enhanced competitiveness for regional, state and federal funding to achieve regionally beneficial projects such as zero emission vehicle replacement, increased transit service frequency and coverage, including express bus and microtransit service, and progression of the Blue Line from Cosumnes River College into Elk Grove.
As part of the agreement, SacRT is committed to a seamless transition with no impact to current riders. Service levels will be maintained or improved, and there are no short term plans to make changes to the existing bus service, or fares. Employees providing Elk Grove transit services employees have been employed since the service contract in July 2019 and will continue with the service annexation.
SacRT and Elk Grove will now work to develop an integration plan to enable SacRT to assume full operations of Elk Grove’s transit services by Thursday, July 1, 2021.
