November 29, 2022 SacRT News

Today, on Giving Tuesday, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) unveiled the 2022 Holiday Bus. In keeping with the “season of giving,” the colorful 40-foot SacRT Holiday Bus is free to ride; however, passengers have the option to donate in the farebox (cash accepted), use the QR code, or link to donate online. This year, all donations will benefit the Front Street Animal Shelter.  

“The SacRT Holiday Bus is a great way to thank our riders and to give back to a local charity in need,” said SacRT General Manager/CEO Henry Li. “We are glad to be able to spread some holiday cheer and hopefully be able to help find some pets a home for the holidays.”  

The SacRT Holiday Bus travels on different routes throughout the Sacramento region spreading goodwill from Thursday, December 1, 2022, through Monday, January 2, 2023.  

"Our shelter is full of amazing animals, and our community is full of amazing people," said Phillip Zimmerman, Front Street Animal Shelter manager. "The Holiday Bus will be a great way to help them find each other by bringing awareness to adoption, and riders who donate will be supporting animals in need both at our shelter and out in our community.” 

The Front Street Animal Shelter takes in thousands of animals each year, many of them lost, sick, injured, neglected or abused. In partnership with Friends of Front Street and incredible donors, the shelter is able to not only provide outstanding care to the animals in the shelter, but also reach beyond their walls to help the many animals and people in our community who need assistance as well.
