What's New

Sacramento Regional Transit is rolling back fares and increasing Light Rail  service on the weekend. 

This is the first general fare reduction in SacRT’s 47-year history.

The basic single ride would decrease by 25 cents from $2.75 to $2.50, and  the basic discount single ride would decrease  10 cents from $1.35 to $1.25. The monthly pass would decrease by $10 from $110 to $100, the discount monthly pass would decrease by $5 from $55 to $50, the paratransit single ride would decrease by 50 cents from $5.50 to $5, and the super senior fare would decrease by $2 from $42 to $40.

Fare changes also include the reimplementation of a 25 cent transfer ticket (allows riders who purchase a single ride ticket with cash to transfer light rail, light rail to bus or bus to bus). 

Riders are  already able to transfer for free using electronic fare media using ZipPass or Connect Card. 

An aggressive implementation schedule would allow SacRT to roll out the fare reduction as early as October 2018 in order to benefit the largest percentage of riders.
