RT Tracker

RT is pleased to announce that a new and improved transit alert service called "RT Tracker," is now available free to subscribers. The new service will allow customers to track shuttle services for the Neighborhood Ride (Routes 16, 33 and 47), McClellan Park, Rancho CordoVan and Granite Regional Park in "real-time." Current Transit Alert customers can sign up for a new account by visiting

Using GPS technology, RT Tracker can display where RT buses are along the route and estimate the arrival time at your stop. Customers can sign up for personalized email alerts with notification of estimated arrival times for your selected route(s), at any stop, at any time during service hours.

Effective Sunday, January 1, 2012, the vendor that provides RT with the current Transit Alert passenger notification system will no longer offer the service and it will be discontinued. RT Transit Alert customers are encouraged to switch to the new RT Tracker.

Regional Transitís Neighborhood Ride Service:

  • The Neighborhood Ride buses are smaller vehicles (approximately 30 feet or less in length) that offer residents greater mobility and new transit options on local intra-community trips.
  • The Neighborhood Ride buses have regular "fixed" routes and schedules like the rest of RT's service, but also offer special curb-to-curb service (not to be confused with ADA/paratransit door-to-door service). The buses are able to "deviate" off-route up to 3/4 of a mile to pick up and drop off seniors age 62 and older, and disabled passengers who qualify for paratransit service.
  • Reservations must be made one day in advance. To request a route deviation on The Neighborhood Ride, please call (916) 556-0250.  The reservation line is open Monday through Saturday from 7am to 7pm.
  • Passengers pay $2.50 per trip $1.25 for seniors/disabled. RT monthly passes and daily passes are also accepted.
  • Marked bus stops are located along the route, and printed schedules are available at several locations around Sacramento and on Regional Transitís Web site.
  • Each bus can transport 12-17 passengers and up to two wheelchairs.
