What it's like to ride Sac RT train for the first time

What it's like to ride Sac RT train for the first time


SACRAMENTO - Because of the impact of the FIX 50 project, there is expected to be thousands of first-time riders on Sacramento's light-rail system. But first-timers may have some questions about riding the trains.

Whether you'll be using the green, gold, or blue line, you'll want to get your boarding pass, and make sure you have it on you at all times. Riding the train can be easy and stress-free, and a better alternative to waiting in gridlock.

First-time rider Kachet Jackson-Henderson will be choosing the train, instead of the traffic nightmare.

"I don't really know what to expect," she says. "I've taken public transit in San Francisco, and I feel like if I can do that I can do Sacramento RT."
