SmaRT Ride Shuttle Service Adjustments Begin August, 28, 2023

Three Zones SmaRT Ride Twitter (1)

Beginning Monday, August 28, 2023, SacRT’s SmaRT Ride on-demand shuttle service made adjustments to three service zones that will impact hours and span of service.

SacRT’s SmaRT Ride program does not have a permanent secure funding source. In 2018 the Sacramento Transportation Authority (STA) provided an initial program award of $12 million that unfortunately expired in June; however, more recently, STA awarded an additional $2.5 million to help support the popular microtransit service over the next two years. SmaRT Ride also receives operating funds from Sacramento County and the cities of Citrus Heights and Folsom.

As a result of the initial SmaRT Ride program grant funding expiring and significantly less funding available, several factors were taken into consideration in deciding which zones would be impacted by the service adjustments while prioritizing service in disadvantaged communities, especially areas that do not have fixed-route service.

The Citrus Heights-Antelope-Orangevale and Downtown-Midtown-East Sacramento microtransit service zones are reduced in size and the Florin-Gerber zone expanded slightly (at no additional cost). The changes aim to increase ridership and reduce cost per passenger.

For operational consistency, all nine SmaRT Ride zones provide the same service hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Changes to SmaRT Ride Zones (effective August 28, 2023)

New Improved Transit Options

SacRT also launched an improved SmaRT Ride app to improve the customer experience by providing all the transit options available near them when a SmaRT Ride shuttle is unavailable due to high demand or other factors.

With the updated app, customers can easily explore various routes and schedules, and receive real-time updates for fixed-route buses, light rail, and other modes of public transportation. If SmaRT Ride isn't available, the app assists by offering the most convenient alternative transit option.

Download the SacRT SmaRT Ride App

First, download the free SmaRT Ride App, which is available in Google Play and the App Store.

To request a ride, enter a pick-up address and then enter your destination address. Note: SmaRT Ride shuttles cannot travel outside the service boundary. The pick-up and drop off location need to be inside the same service zone.

Following a SmaRT Ride request, the SmaRT Ride app will provide passengers with an estimated pick-up time, track their bus in real-time, and be alerted when their ride is about to arrive. After boarding the vehicle, passengers will also be alerted when their ride is about to reach their desired destination.

SmaRT Ride customers will also be able to request rides by calling 916-556-0100 or by going online to; however, trip requests must be made on the same day. Wait times for service are subject to vehicle availability and demand.

The drop off window is an estimate based on your desired travel time. Because this is a ride-sharing service, actual drop-off time may vary due to demand. Please understand that while we make every effort to arrive at your desired travel time, you may have to wait for the SmaRT Ride shuttle arrival due to demand. If you must arrive at your destination at a specified time, we recommend planning your trip to include a time cushion.

SmaRT Ride service is only available within each designated geographical service zone. SmaRT Ride shuttles cannot travel outside the service boundaries.

During peak hours, SmaRT Ride customers may experience longer wait times or no service available due to increased demand, the updated SacRT SmaRT Ride app will display other fixed-route transit options (bus and light rail) that are available (including Elk Grove transit services and Folsom Stage Line).
