SacRT on the Move: Short-Range Transit Plan

November 23, 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 the SacRT Forward project, which brought a more frequent service to the region seven days a week, and in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic changed travel patterns everywhere.  SacRT now considers current data and trends to establish where transit service and operations go from here.  The SRTP will help guide the system on continuing the goals of SacRT Forward and recovering from pandemic impacts.  

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 that considers things such as span and frequency improvements, pandemic recovery, and ridership building initiatives.  Potential service plan ideas are also motivated by SacRT’s Network Integration Plan, and concepts brought forth via customer complaints and unmet transit needs. 

SRTP COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT 

SacRT kicked off the SRTP public involvement in November 2021 with two virtual open house events! These events saw great attendance with over 30 members of the public participating in the events. SacRT staff successfully shared updates and provided opportunities for the community to share their thoughts and ideas about future service plans for the region.

SacRT was able to obtain a multitude of comments and suggestions about the SRTP, and staff will spend the next several weeks analyzing the feedback received and preparing a draft document for public review in January 2022.

Events were held via Zoom during the following days and times:  

Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.  

Video recording on YouTube

Wednesday, November 17, 2021, at 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Video recording on YouTube

For those that were not able to attend a virtual event, there will be additional opportunities to get involved and stay informed of the latest project updates.  A ‘Schedule of Outreach’ is under construction and will be posted online and shared via social media as soon as it is available.
