SacRT Service Recovery Plan to Restore Service to pre-COVID-19 Levels

July 31, 2020 General, SacRT in Community

Effective Sunday, August 30, 2020, SacRT will begin the implementation of its service recovery plan to restore service levels to approximately 100% pre-COVID-19, including light rail (Blue, Gold and Green lines), bus (routes 1 through 93) all peak-only/express (routes 102, 106, 107, 109, 113, 129, 134, 161 and 193), Folsom Stage Line (routes 10F, 20F and 30F), and some destination routes including the Airport Express (route 142) and Rancho CordoVan (routes 175, 176 and 177). JIBE Express (routes 171, 174, 180 and 182) was reconfigured in July discontinuing routes 170 and 172 and adding new routes 180 and 182. SacRT is also making some adjustments to several bus routes to improve on-time performance. SacRT and Yolobus will continue to monitor ridership on the Causeway Connection (route 138) and may add additional trips in late September.

SacRT’s service recovery plan is an integral part of supporting the region as it reopens by adding more service to ensure people can safely travel to essential destinations. Similar to other businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic may have an impact on SacRT employees (i.e., school and childcare dilemmas, and health related matters) possibly resulting in manpower shortages, which may cause temporary service adjustments with little or no notice.

We encourage customers to check their bus arrival times in advance by using the RT Tracker (real-time bus information) available at m.sacrt.com and check the Service Alerts page at the top of sacrt.com/alerts.

Please know that SacRT is doing everything possible to keep its employees and customers safe and healthy to ensure minimal impacts to service during these unpredictable times. To learn more about SacRT’s best safety practices and other prevention guidance, visit sacrt.com/covid-19.
