SacRT Moves Forward in North Natomas

SacRT is moving forward with improvements that reduce congestion and lead to economic growth. Almost every bus route has been adjusted to improve frequency, scheduling, and weekend service. SacRT is also raising the standards for safety and cleanliness with system-wide improvements while lowering fares.

We are excited to see an extension of Route 13 to El Centro Road on the west side of North Natomas. There will be improved frequency on Route 11 with midday frequency every 45 minutes and peak-hour frequency every 30 minutes. Both routes will have weekend and holiday service. In addition, Route 113, a new commuter service, will service between Truxel Road & Gateway Park Boulevard and the Arden/Del Paso light rail station during peak commuting hours.

Check out the complete new network launching on September 8, 2019.

To kickoff these service changes, riders can ride for FREE from Sunday, September 8 - Wednesday, September 12. (Note: This does not include Jibe Express service.)

Seize the Way: Walk to School

The benefits of walking and biking to school are numerous. Kids get their wiggles out early to increase concentration and bond with friends and family. Parents reduce car traffic near the school and increase their family's physical activity. Communities with high rates of walking and biking tend to be healthier and happier. Win-win-win.

If your kiddos aren't yet participating in the Jibe to School program, there's no better time than now to get started. First, find your school for information about school specific programs. Second, sign up for a Trip Scanner card. Third, start walking, biking, scooting, or whatever foot-powered mode you prefer.

15 mph School Zones

School is back in session and it's time to slow down in school zones. As part of Vision Zero efforts, the Sacramento City Council voted to reduce speed limits in school zones to 15 mph. Vision Zero is an action plan approved by Council in 2018 to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries in Sacramento by 2027.

Public Works recently completed the installation of almost 400 signs near 115 public, private, and charter schools within the City of Sacramento.

This is a great step forward to calming traffic around our local schools and we applaud the effort.

Ueda Trail Closure

As many of you already know, the Ueda Parkway Bike Path, between Arden Garden Connector and Del Paso Road, has been closed since May. The Natomas East Main Drainage Canal west levee required cutoff wall improvements from the pumping station just upstream of Dry Creek downstream (southward) to Arden-Garden Connector Bridge.

Good news! The project is scheduled to be completed at the end of November, with ample time to get a jump start on some new year's resolutions.
