SacRT implementing rear door entry for bus riders

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVD19 virus and to protect the health of employees,  Sacramento Regional Transit issued an advisory this afternoon.

Effective immediately SacRT is transitioning to rear door boarding. Passengers requiring ADA ramps, utilizing mobility devices or need priority seating may continue to use the front door for boarding.

For riders paying cash or with a paper ticket, payment can be make depositing it in the metal box located above the front wheel-well and pick up a paper daily pass or transfer near the box after payment is made. 

Connect Card users are asked to tap their card at the Connect Card reader located on the yellow pole. ZipPass mobile fare app users just need to show their active screen to bus operators while standing behind the white line, which is located on the floor approximately four feet from the bus operator. 

Additionally, SacRT is reminding riders to practice social distancing when riding bus and light rail vehicles by staying at least six feet away from other riders and operators when possible. To protect operators, SacRT is currently installing a protective plexi-glass barrier on each bus by the driver’s seat and adding a detachable chain barrier above the white line to reduce exposure.

SacRT has been deemed an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
