How SacRT is Keeping Riders Safe: SacRT has implemented and/or increased best practices to create a safer transit environment: • Blocking off certain seats in buses and light rail trains to provide physical distancing • Installed protective plexi-glass barriers on each bus by the driver's seat to reduce risk when paying fare • Requiring all employees and riders to wear a face covering or mask when riding buses and light rail trains • Fogging and disinfecting buses, light rail trains, facilities, and touch pointsRydeFreeRT is available any day, any time, during regular SacRT service hours.
