DOWNTOWN LIGHT RAIL ARRIVAL STATIONS

(remember to look at the train head-sign for the correct direction of travel) 

  • Passengers riding to downtown on the Blue Line from Citrus Heights/Roseville should exit the train at the 10 & K Station and walk to the 8th & K Bus Stop to board the bus to the Aftershock Festival (look for Aftershock signage identifying the stop).
  • Passengers riding to downtown on the Blue Line from south Sacramento/Elk Grove should exit the train at the 9th & K Station and walk to the 8th & K Bus Stop to board the bus to the Aftershock Festival (look for Aftershock signage identifying the stop).

Remember, light rail trains operate on one-way streets in downtown, so you will need to board return trains in a different location than where you exited.
