FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE SACRAMENTO PASSENGERS BEING SURVEYED FOR TRANSIT SERVICE RESET
June 27, 2023, Marysville, CA – Yuba-Sutter Transit is currently surveying past, present, and possible future passengers as planning for the reset of its Sacramento Commuter and Midday services gets underway. This process will ultimately result in specific schedule recommendations that will be the subject of a public hearing held as part of the evening meeting of the Yuba-Sutter Transit Board of Directors at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 21st.
The survey is designed to gain a better understanding of how Yuba-Sutter Transit's Sacramento services are currently being used and how those services might be tailored to best serve passengers in the future. Three plus years since the start of the pandemic, due to continuing remote work schedules, Sacramento ridership is averaging only about 25% of pre-COVID levels. As a result, the emergency May 2020 suspension of six commuter trips (three AM and three PM) are expected to be made permenant, further schedule reductions are being considered, and the remaining schedules will be reset to better reflect the new post-pandemic "normal".
The survey link below is being emailed to Yuba-Sutter Transit's extensive database of past and present Sacramento passengers, but anyone who might consider using the service in the future is also invited to participate.
The link, which is also available from the agency website www.yubasuttertransit.com, will be open through Sunday, July 16th. The results will be used to develop a draft service plan for public review and comment. The final draft Sacramento service plan will be the subject of the September public hearing with any resulting service and policy changes expected to be effective in November.
For more information, please contact Adam Hansen, Planning Manager, at (530) 634-6880 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
