Comprehensive Transit Analysis

The Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) service scenarios were adopted by City Council in April 2017.

Project History

City of Elk Grove Comprehensive Transit Analysis

To best meet the transportation needs of residents, visitors, and businesses, we have embarked upon a review of the city's public transit services.

The review will ultimately determine how public transit may better meet the short-term and longer-term needs of the community including opportunities for transit service connections to the RT’s light rail service.

The project includes:

  • A review of transit service needs and requirements and development of service improvement options to best meet the mobility needs of residents and visitors of the City;
  • A review of current transit policies and procedures; and
  • The development of an Action Plan to guide the implementation of transit service improvements over the next 5 to 10+ year period.

Public Participation Opportunities

Over the next several months, the City will be seeking public input on:

  • The role of e-tran public transit in: (a) meeting the transport/mobility requirements of residents, visitors, employees, and others and (b) Light rail transit  connectivity/enhanced commuter trips
  • The delivery of current e-tran public transit services - local and commuter
