Public Transportation


Public Transportation

As our Region continues to respond to COVID-19, many of our regional transit operators have temporarily reduced service.

SACOG provides planning support and a forum for coordination among the region’s public transit operators. Several projects and ongoing activities are underway to help plan and operate transit services to meet the region’s needs.

In addition, SACOG administers funding available under the Transportation Development Act (TDA), and coordinates other federal and state transit funding programs. 

Transit in the Sacramento region encompass a wide array of services including urban light rail and bus service, express commuter buses from suburban cities, paratransit dial-a-ride service for the disabled, and rural lifeline service running once-a-day or even once-a-week.
