High Capacity Bus Service/ Bus Rapid Transit

October 8, 2020 SacRT in Community

The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) is assessing opportunities for High Capacity Bus Service along congested corridors in the Sacramento region, including Stockton Boulevard, Florin Road, Sunrise Boulevard, Arden Way and Watt Avenue.

High Capacity Bus Service or Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is faster and more reliable service that is useful to more people for travel to work, school and to meet their daily needs.

The goal of this workshop is to share examples of High Capacity Bus Service strategies and to understand priorities for improving speed, reliability and user experience. Some of the strategies include bus-only lanes, signal priority and station amenities.

Virtual Public Workshop

A Virtual Public Workshop was held Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (Meeting summary documents will be added soon!)

Share your Thoughts

Take the online survey to help plan transit priority, route streamlining and access improvements that could be most beneficial on the five corridors in the short and long term.
