In an effort to streamline bus route 38, SacRT is making a detour off of J Street through East Sacramento. The new route 38 will now travel on either 29th or 30th street depending on the direction and take T Street to serve UC Davis Medical Center. Route 30 will still serve J Street in East Sacramento.

**Route 82**

Bus route 82 will begin a slight detour in the Arden-Arcade area. There will no longer be a stop at Whitney and Walnut. There will be two new stops, one at Mission and Whitney and one at Mission and Engle to better serve local residents.

For questions, call 916-321-BUSS (2877).

Message Regarding Commute Time Trains
RT has received comments regarding short trains during commute hours. Unfortunately, RT has been struggling for some time now to meet our commute time peak vehicle requirement of 4-car trains (3-cars for VTA trains). A major part of our fleet, the Siemens light rail vehicles, reach the end of their 30-year useful life in March of this year. We realize that this causes crowding and while "standing room only" trips are common and considered normal during commute times for transit systems around the country, we certainly want to operate the design capacity of the system. A 30-year-old vehicle with several million miles of service, has more issues requiring maintenance and are less reliable overall. Staff is working diligently to repair and return vehicles to service as quickly as possible, but the real solution is to replace our aging fleet as they reach the end of their 30 year life. This will require a major financial commitment on the part of the community in order to fund light rail vehicle replacement and other state of good repair projects for RT's aging system. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
During major Golden 1 Center events, RT Routes 11, 15, 30, 38, 51, 62, 86 and 88 may have to detour based on traffic conditions and road closures with little or no notice.
Rider Alert: 7th & K Station will permanently close effective (end of service day) on Friday, September 30, 2016.
RT Bus Service Disruptions
RT's bus service from time to time can be delayed by traffic congestion and other non-related RT events, with little or no notice, that may affect service. As part of a disruption, RT bus stops may be affected as well.
