Sacramento Regional Transit Expands

RT cut such service two years ago.   But, Mike Wiley with RT says the district's efforts to improve efficiency have paid off with the extended hours and more routes, "We're adding new services to Citrus Heights and to South Sacramento.  We're adding Saturday service into both South and North Natomas."
Wiley says the recession hurt in the beginning, but, RT reduced operating costs,  and was able to create a reserve of more than $5 million while moving forward on several projects.
Construction has started on a parking garage and on two bridges that are part of the Cosumnes River College light rail extension.  
The new hours mean riders will be able to take light rail or buses up to 12:30 a.m.  The changes start this Sunday.
