The Transportation Equity Work Group works to bring equity to the Sacramento area transit system through examining transportation policy at the local, regional and state level. The group also assesses current regional policies as well as the distribution of transportation funding and the resulting effects on low-income communities.

The Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) is in the process of developing “TransitRenewal,” a comprehensive operational analysis of the entire RT bus and light rail system that will result in recommendations for transit service improvements over the next five years. This will be accomplished by conducting an in-depth transit service analysis, developing service standards and gathering extensive community input. To learn more, visit this website.
In response to the plan drafted by Regional Transit as outlined at the RT January 23, 2012, Board Meeting, CORE Transportation Equity Work Group Members submitted a letter to the Regional Transit Board of Directors highlighting issues with the draft plan, and making recommendations to improve the plan and service.
