Forum ask your opinion on the future of mass transit in Sacramento

You may not be able to do anything about rising gas prices, however, you can have a say in the future of mass transit in Sacramento.

The Sacramento Regional Transit District will hold a public forum to present its transit master plan, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, May 8 in the University Union’s Lobby Suite. The event is open to the campus community and refreshments will be served.

“RT is preparing for the region's growing and changing transportation needs by updating the transit master plan,” said Laura Washburn, SRT, marketing director. “The updated plan will guide us in developing and delivering projects and programs to the Sacramento community through 2035. In order for the plan to be successful, we need feedback from everyone including Sacramento State students, staff and faculty.”

The last Transit Master Plan was produced in 1993.

RT will also present its master plan for public feedback 6-7:30 p.m., May 29th, at Sacramento State’s Alumni Center.
