Holiday Bus Benefits Civic Thread

Today, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) unveiled the 2021 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 Civic Thread, formerly known as WALKSacramento. 

“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. “After another challenging year, we are glad to be able to spread some holiday cheer with the SacRT Holiday Bus.” 

The SacRT Holiday Bus travels on different routes throughout the Sacramento region spreading goodwill from Wednesday, December 1, 2021, through Sunday, January 2, 2022. View the Holiday Bus schedule at 

Transportation is often one of the biggest challenges faced by the communities we serve, so it's a real honor for Civic Thread, formerly WALKSacramento, to partner with SacRT to support community members during the holiday season," said Civic Thread Executive Director Kiara Reed. "The holiday bus unveiling coincides with the launch of our new name and new brand. We are extremely grateful for this gift from SacRT." 

Since 1998, Civic Thread—formerly WALKSacramento—has been on a mission to empower institutionally underserved communities to achieve healthy built environments. Learn more about Civic Thread at and donate directly at
