Give Your Feedback to SACOG on Unmet Transit Needs

September 25, 2023 SacRT in Community

The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is looking for feedback on our area’s bus, dial-a-ride, paratransit and light rail transit services. SACOG accepts transit needs related comments from any area in the counties of Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba. 

SACOG’s annual Unmet Transit Needs (UTN) Finding process has begun, with a schedule of upcoming events designed to identify transit service needs in the Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties.

An unmet transit need is defined as “Existing transit services or service variants, including services where transfers may be necessary to complete a trip, that are not adequately meeting the identified transportation needs of residents of the SACOG four-county Regional Transportation Planning Area who are likely to use public transportation.”

Unmet Transit Needs meetings will be in-person at various community events throughout the four counties, as well virtually via Zoom.  Please visit the SACOG website for UTN meeting information:
