SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Regional Transit (RT) officials have recommended closing its Green Line light rail system indefinitely as part of the agency’s third round of cuts in the last decade, The Sacramento Bee reports.
RT opened its $44 million Green Line only four years ago; however, the line currently averages only 440 boardings a day with limited service, and costs RT $330,000 annually to operate.
The list of potential service cuts, most of them to bus lines, would take place in January 2017. RT officials say they also are considering eliminating some administrative positions to help reduce operating costs by $2 million a year. A final RT board decision on the cuts is expected in late June. For the full story, click here.
