The Sacramento Regional Transit District, or 'RT, is the transit agency in the Sacramento, California area.

History

RT began operations on April 1, 1973, with the acquisition of the Sacramento Transit Authority. Later that year, RT completed a new maintenance facility and purchased 103 new buses.

RT continued to expand bus service to the growing Sacramento region while a cooperative effort emerged among city, county and state government officials to develop a light rail system. In 1987 the 18.3-mile light rail system opened, linking the northeastern (Interstate 80) and eastern (Highway 50) corridors with downtown Sacramento.

RT completed its first light rail extension in September 1998 with the opening of the Mather Field/Mills Station. In September 2003, RT opened the first phase of the Blue Line to south Sacramento (also referred to as the South Line), a 6.3-mile extension with seven new stations. In June of 2004, light rail was extended from the Mather Field/Mills Station to Sunrise Boulevard with three new stations. On October 15, 2005, light rail was extended 7.3 miles east from the Sunrise Station to the city of Folsom, which included four new stations. In December 2006, RT completed the final segment of the Gold Line (also referred to as the Amtrak/Folsom Corridor) project when it opened the .7-mile light rail extension to Sacramento Valley Station with the addition of two new stations, which connects light rail with Amtrak inter-city and Capitol Corridor rail service as well as local commuter buses.

RT is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors comprised of members of the Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove and Folsom city councils as well as the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. The fiscal year 2011 operating budget is $117.8 million, with a capital budget of $19.1 million.

RT employs a work force of approximately 885 (September 2010) people, 77 percent of whom are dedicated to operations and maintenance of the bus and light rail systems. RT operates three maintenance and operations facilities; one for buses at 29th and N Streets, one for the Community Bus Service at McClellan Park, and one for the light rail system at 2700 Academy Way in north Sacramento.
