SACRAMENTO, CA – The Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) and the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) are hosting the third Station Pre-Party on October 18 from 3:30 – 6:30 pm. at the Watt/Manlove Station when the Kings take on the Los Angeles Clippers.

Come and shoot some hoops, score giveaways, relax in a pop up park, and jam out to music all before you board the train.

“SACOG is thrilled to support the efforts of local transit providers to improve the experience of current passengers and attracting new passengers looking for an inexpensive, relaxing, and convenient way to get to events at Golden 1 Center and a host of great destinations in midtown and downtown Sacramento,” said Mike McKeever, SACOG Chief Executive Officer. “In order to achieve our regional greenhouse gas reduction goals, more people need to take transit for commute, errand and recreational trips. These events will also highlight SACOG’s work implementing tactical urbanism, where low cost and temporary events draw out communities to activate space and create community.”

“By working with our partners like SACOG who strongly support public transportation, we can amplify our message that riding RT is clean, safe, and convenient – and, on many days, it’s even entertaining!” said Henry Li, RT General Manager/CEO. “We want everyone to try RT.”

RT and SACOG are hosting Station Pre-Party activities at various RT stations prior to events, games and concerts.
