Sacramento Regional Transit starts direct bus service to SMF from Downtown

In a ceremony held on Capitol Mall this morning, Sacramento Regional Transit kicked-off its direct bus service to Sacramento International Airport SMF.

The new route 142 operates seven days a week every 20 to 30 minutes combined with Yolobus downtown/airport routes 42A and 42B. 

“Airport express bus service is an easy, affordable way to avoid parking fees and ride-hailing surge pricing,” SacRT General Manager, CEO Henry Li said. “This is a great solution to provide a frequent mobility option from downtown Sacramento to the airport while we pursue additional funding to extend the Green Line light rail to the airport.”

There are several downtown stops located J Street, L Street and Capitol in downtown Sacramento with direct service to Terminals A and B at the Sacramento International Airport. The new bus route 142 starts service as early as 3:24 a.m. and operates just past midnight.

SacRT is offering free rides on the Route 142 until Friday, January 31 to celebrate the new airport express route. Yolobus is also offering free rides on Routes 42A and 42B that go between downtown and the airport. 

Starting Saturday, February 1, the cost will be $2.50 for a single ride, $1.25 for discount eligible riders or free for students in grades TK through 12. For Yolobus Routes 42A and 42B, the cost is $2.25 per trip, $1 for discount eligible riders and free for students.
