About the new S700 Low-Floor Light Rail Vehicles

SacRT is modernizing our light rail system to make future travel easier, safer, and more convenient for our riders. It is the biggest project in our history and will take five years to complete. Construction is scheduled to take place from 2023 to 2027.

The new S700 low-floor trains will begin service on the Gold and Green lines once construction is completed this Summer. Construction on Blue Line station platforms will begin in fall 2024.
