September 29, 2018 |  

Effective Monday, October 1, Sacramento Regional Transit will implement new fares that will represent lower fares for the first time in their 47-year history.

The basic single ride will decrease by 25 cents from $2.75 to $2.50, and the discount single ride will decrease by 10 cents from $1.35 to $1.25. The basic monthly pass will decrease by $10 from $110 to $100; the discount monthly pass will decrease by $5 from $55 to $50; the paratransit single ride will decrease by 50 cents from $5.50 to $5; and the super senior fare will decrease by $2 from $42 to $40. In January, SacRT lowered the student monthly pass from $55 to $20 for students in grades K through 12.

“SacRT has spent the past three years tightening its belt and implementing cost-cutting measures,” Henry Li, SacRT General Manager/CEO said. “The hard work of our staff has paid off, and now the Sacramento community will receive the benefits.”

In addition, transfer tickets will be re-implemented. For just 25 cents, riders who purchase a single ride ticket with cash can transfer between bus and light rail, light rail to bus or bus to bus. Riders are already able to transfer for free using electronic fare media such as ZipPass or Connect Card.
