Elk Grove, CA:
What do I need to use your Aftershock service?
Reply: All you need to do is show your valid same-day ticket for the Aftershock festival. Just show it to a bus operator when boarding the bus, or to fare inspection staff upon request on light rail. The shuttle runs from 8th & K to the Jibboom Street ARCO gas station, which puts you very close to Discovery Park. We hope you enjoy using SacRT and enjoy the concert!
I see that the new low floor trains are in the process of being test. I am very excited to be able to ride on one. When can riders expect to see these trains out on the system?
Reply: That is correct, the new low floor trains are being tested to get them ready for revenue service. They are expected to be out on the system starting in summer of 2024. These new trains will begin serving the Gold Line first. You can learn more at sacrt.com/newtrains.
Can college students participate in the student video contest?
Reply: Thank you for your interest, but no, this video contest is just for those eligible for SacRT's RydeFreeRT program, so that is for students in grades TK - 12.
Has SacRT considered adding BikeLink bicycle lockers at the Roseville Rd or Watt/I-80 stations? While some stations on the Gold Line have these lockers, they are owned and maintained by the City of Folsom. Sacramento City staff have advised that their city only places lockers on their public right-of-way and property. This leaves SacRT as the only entity which could consider adding such lockers to farthest two Blue Line stations in the northeast of the city.
Reply: Thank you for your question. Earlier this year SacRT completed an Origin and Destination Survey that found over 10% of riders arrive at light rail stations via a bicycle. https://www.sacrt.com/apps/origin-destination-survey/
We will continue to look at ways we can improve amenities for bicyclists and we look forward to ushering in new-low floor vehicles that will dramatically improve the passenger experience.
