SacRT Launches ON-DEMAND Service called SmaRT Ride.
From the SmaRT Ride Website:
After the successful debut of SmaRT Ride in Citrus Heights and expansion to Orangevale, Antelope, Fair Oaks and to the Historic Folsom light rail station, SacRT’s new on-demand microtransit service will be expanded to serve the Franklin corridor, areas of South Sacramento including City College. Special thanks to the State Transportation Authority for granting funds to ultimately expand to ten service areas.
SmaRT Ride is similar to other ride-share services where customers can use a smartphone app to request a ride that will pick up and drop off passengers wherever they wish to travel within the service boundaries. Following a SmaRT Ride request, the Microtransit app will provide passengers with an estimated pick-up time, track their bus in real-time, and be alerted when their ride is about to arrive. Passengers will also be alerted when their ride is about to reach their desired destination.
SmaRT Ride customers will also be able to request rides by calling 916-556-0258 or by going online to ondemand.transloc.com ; however, trip reservations must be made on the same day.
