SacRT on the Move: Short-Range Transit Plan

August 15, 2021 General, SacRT in Community

SacRT on the Move is the Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) for the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT). All transit agencies are required to have an approved SRTP. This plan will make recommendations looking forward over the next five years.

In September 2019, SacRT implemented major changes to the bus network with the SacRT Forward project. Every bus route had changes, and many shifted to a more frequent service seven days a week. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic upended transit service and changed travel patterns everywhere. With the new bus network implementation and impacts from COVID-19, we will examine the data to see what is working and what is not, in addition to impacts from the pandemic.

SacRT will use the data and have conversations with stakeholders and the community to establish where we go from here. This plan will help guide the system on how to recover from coronavirus impacts, and we want to hear from you!

The FY2022-2026 SRTP will include information on the following:

  • District and Transit System Overview
  • Service Planning and Evaluation
  • Operating Plan
  • Capital Improvement Planning
  • Strategic Planning and Marketing

SacRT staff is developing a five-year service plan, which will be shared with the public soon. Public review and feedback on future plans and our system recovery is encouraged and welcomed at any time during the update process.

SacRT plans to share the draft SRTP with the SacRT Board of Directors and will be actively seeking public comment during Fall 2021. We encourage our riders, stakeholders, and the entire community to become involved in helping us make this plan meaningful to the Sacramento region.

SRTP Project Timeline (tentative):

Summer 2021 – Provide update to SacRT Board of Directors

Fall 2021 – Publish draft SRTP, open public review and comment period

Comments will be reviewed and considered prior to finalizing the plan
