Sac TRU members Russell, Sarah & Helen address the Sacramento Regional Transit District Board of Directors about the unfairness of only providing 90 minute transfers at no cost to users of the connect card or the online app (which is only available in English, and excludes riders without access to smart phones and credit cards,) and about inconsistencies in reported income on various budget items.
Join us the Saturday before an RT Board meeting to go through Agenda Items and develop Sac TRU Talking Points. This is an opportunity to learn how RT is governed and to voice your comments. Love RT like we do? Come let the board know. Have a specific concern? Come let the board know!
Here's an example of the talking point for the May 8th RT Board Meeting:
Sac TRU Talking Points: May 8, 2017 RT Board Meeting
• Item No. 2 - Title VI Program Update:
Sac TRU Demands free transfers for ALL riders. We encourage RT to treat cash fare paying customers equally. Everyone should be able to enjoy the newly reinstated transfers not only riders who have access to a smart phone, a credit card, and those that can use English only apps.
• Item No. 7 – 2018 Budget:
• Item No. 11 – Prop 1A Funding:
