SacRT Go Service
The only change to ADA paratransit service is that SacRT is operating the service directly, instead of contracting it to Paratransit Inc. (PI). SacRT’s ADA paratransit service team include many of the same drivers and reservationists that were employed by PI. Service levels will not change and fare will not increase.
SacRT’s focus is on working with our partners in the disability, elderly and transit communities to develop and operate an ADA paratransit service model that complements our accessible transit system and meets the mobility needs of all members of our community.
