General Information for SacRT Light Rail Riders
- Purchase a ticket or pass. If you are using a pre-paid paper ticket or pass, you must validate it in the slot on the fare vending machine before boarding. Passengers who fail to show proof of payment may be cited. Kiosks are also located at the station for pass purchasing.
- Signage will identify which side of the station platform to stand. For your safety, stand behind the yellow caution strip.
- As the train arrives, check the head sign to verify you are boarding the correct train. Once the train has come to a complete stop, push the button on the door to enter.
- Listen and watch for your stop. Announcements on the train will tell you the next station that the train will stop. These announcements are both audio and on a text display. There are also maps on every train to show you the light rail stations.
Tips for SacRT Light Rail Accessibility
- Before the train arrives, please stand behind the visible yellow squares on the platform.
- If you need accessibility assistance, please allow enough time to reach the waiting area at the top of the ramp or lift before the train arrives. After the train has stopped, the operator will open the door and lower the access platform.
- For your safety, SacRT asks riders to quickly find their seat or secure a standing position before the train departs. If riders need additional time to board and get to their seat, they can make the operator aware by using the boarding ramp a the front of the train.
- While in transit, the train will shift side-to-side and may be unsteady. Handrails are located on the the back of seats and above if you are standing. Hold on to the handrails if you’re standing or walking to your seat while the train is moving.
