SacRT Offers a Week of Free Rides to Celebrate California Clean Air Day
Try Transit for Free October 1 through October 7, 2022
In celebration of California Clean Air Day, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) is offering a week of systemwide free rides during the first week of October 2022. The free rides include fixed-route bus (including Airport Express, Causeway Connection, Elk Grove, and Folsom), light rail, on-demand SmaRT Ride shuttles, SacRT GO paratransit service, and e-van service. Anyone can ride SacRT for free between Saturday, October 1 and Friday, October 7, 2022.
Help clear the air by trying an alternative form of transportation. Leave the car at home and try SacRT for free.
“Transportation is the number one source of air pollution in California,” said SacRT General Manager/CEO Henry Li. “Leaving your car at home helps ensure that every breath you take is a breath of clean air.”
The Coalition for Clean Air started California Clean Air Day five years ago as an effort to improve air quality and protect public health. Learn more about California Clean Air Day at ccair.org.
