Sacramento RT Community Survey

In the past 18 months, RT has made significant progress in improving its financial stability, increasing ridership, and heightening its commitment to clean, safe and convenient transit service. RT is excited to build upon this improvement through its newly proposed strategic vision that places an emphasis on developing community partnerships and operating a “Customer First” culture. RT is also implementing a route optimization study to inform service design enhancements, as well as a community survey to gather and analyze resident feedback.

Sacramento has changed significantly in the last 30 years and so must our public transportation infrastructure. As RT looks to the future, there are challenges ahead. Greater funding will be needed to repair and replace outdated equipment, implement new technology, and to increase/expand service. Compared to regions such as San Diego and Portland, RT is 3-6 times underfunded from local investment. We want to build community awareness around the current state of Sacramento public transit and what could be done with additional RT funding throughout the region.

Please  take a few minutes to take the survey
