Council Authorizes Transit Service Changes, if Needed, for COVID-19

Posted: 03/26/2020

On Wednesday, the City Council adopted a policy and procedures that give the City Manager the authority to modify, reduce, and/or suspend City transit services during a declared emergency event. While the policy and procedures are not intended to dictate exactly what service changes will occur and when, they provide general guidelines and options to respond to ridership loss, bus operator availability, government health and safety orders, and other unforeseen service impacts during an emergency event.

City staff are continuing to monitor the impacts to Elk Grove’s regularly scheduled transit services. We continue to coordinate with the City’s contracted transit provider, Sacramento Regional Transit District, to determine what service changes may be necessary under the present circumstances. Should the City Manager decide to implement any temporary service changes, City staff will notify the public to the greatest extent possible, and in compliance with federal requirements, prior to any changes taking affect.

For more information on the City’s transit services during the COVID-19 event, please visit the Transit webpage, or call Customer Service at (916) 683-8726. If you’re an e-tran user, sign-up for Rider Alerts to receive text and/or e-mail notifications.
