The Sacramento region has significantly changed since the Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) transit network was first established 30 years ago. Traditionally, transit services have been focused on downtown employment, but more recently cities have been redesigning transit services to compete for distributed work trips as well. Land use, travel patterns, economic centers and transportation technology in the Sacramento region have transformed, and so should the public transportation system.
ABOUT SACRT FORWARD
SacRT Forward will rethink the purpose and design of Sacramento Regional Transit’s entire transit network by exploring wholesale changes to the network, including a “blank slate” look at how to position transit competitively long-term in the Sacramento region. Based upon technical analysis, best practices in the transit planning industry, and stakeholder and community input, the project development team will develop alternative transit networks, near-term recommendations, and a plan for expansion dependent upon increased local funding.
