Document Description
SACOG, the City of Sacramento, the City of West Sacramento, Yolo County Transit District, and Sacramento Regional Transit, have undertaken planning, environmental, and engineering activities for the reintroduction of the streetcar to connect the cities of West Sacramento and Sacramento and their shared riverfront. The purpose of the Project is to improve transit service and local circulation with an alternative (non-auto) mode, and supporting existing and future development in the Cities of West Sacramento and Sacramento. The 3.3-mile streetcar alignment would extend from the West Sacramento Civic Center to the Midtown entertainment and retail district in Sacramento. New track, station platform and traction power facilities would be constructed within existing street rights-of-way. Maintenance facilities would be located on Caltrans owned property.
