Sacramento RT set to launch microtransit pilot next month

Posted on January 16, 2018

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) partnered with TransLoc to test microtransit beginning in February, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Working similar to Uber, microtransit buses will carry a handful of riders at a time. The driver will have an iPad on the dashboard showing the shortest route to get passengers to their individual destinations.

SacRT chose Citrus Heights for a six-month pilot program because the agency already has two local shuttles there that pick up passengers at their doorsteps. But those dial-a-ride buses currently require phone reservations a day in advance and have proven to be cumbersome to manage. They also don’t work for people used to instant service.
