The Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) is in the process of developing "TransitRenewal," a comprehensive operational analysis of the entire RT bus and light rail system that will result in recommendations for transit service improvements over the next five years. This will be accomplished by conducting an in-depth transit service analysis, developing service standards, and gathering extensive community input.

In June 2010, RT implemented major service reductions. TransitRenewal will provide recommendations that will determine how to restore, restructure and essentially "renew" transit service from 2012 through 2017 within available funding. Community participation is needed to identify short-term opportunities and long-term recommendations that are consistent with RT's recently completed TransitAction Plan (Transit Master Plan) that will benefit current riders and attract new riders.

RT encourages everyone to participate in the process, which will prioritize the transit needs for the Sacramento region.

Why is RT Doing TransitRenewal?

Recent economic conditions required RT to implement service reductions throughout the area. The goal for TransitRenewal is to identify ways to "renew" transit in an effective, sustainable manner that prioritizes long-term environmental and financial health for the region.

Who makes up the TransitRenewal Team?

  • Regional Transit (www.sacrt.com)
  • Transportation Management & Design, Inc. (www.tmdinc.net) – a California-based firm specializing in public transit planning and service design.
  • Steer Davies Gleave North America (www.steerdaviesgleave.com) – an international transportation consulting firm who headed the TransitAction Plan.
