The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) and UC Davis Health officially announced a new name for the 39th Street light rail station: the 39th Street/UC Davis Health Station.

While UC Davis Health has been a SacRT partner for many years, including providing regular free shuttle service to and from the light rail station to the UC Davis Medical Center and clinics in Sacramento, the station-naming collaboration is a first for SacRT and serves as a clear indicator that the station is a gateway to UC Davis’ Sacramento campus.

“We are always looking for innovative mobility solutions to enhance connectivity to jobs, health care and education, and this collaboration represents another way we are achieving that goal,” said SacRT GM/CEO Henry Li.

UC Davis Health is the second-largest employer in Sacramento County, so SacRT and UC Davis Health are working together to ensure UC Davis employees and patients have convenient transportation options, consistent with the health system’s “Discover Health Close to Home” and sustainability initiatives.

SacRT has future plans to provide additional service to the UC Davis Health community. A dedicated pick-up and drop-off location for a new SmaRT Ride on-demand microtransit service is set to arrive in early 2020, and a new electric zero-emission bus service from the UC Davis Sacramento campus to the main campus in Davis is set to begin in April 2020.

The 39th Street/UC Davis Health Station will be a key connection point for the future Aggie Square development, near Broadway and Stockton Blvd. The partnership between SacRT and UC Davis Health is another example of breaking down access and transportation barriers.
