Sustainable Transportation Projects

In case you were wondering how SACOG might otherwise spend the $195 million that CalTrans seeks for Highway 50 expansion, here are some suggestions (courtesy of Warren Cushman). These are all projects that should be included in the MTP and receive priority for funding:

  1. Double-tracking the Folsom light rail line.
  2. South line (light rail), phase 2.
  3. Street car service between West Sacramento and downtown
  4. Neighborhood shuttle service in Arden Arcade
  5. Expanded RT service on Watt Avenue
  6. Neighborhood shuttle service in South Sacrmento
  7. BRT (bus rapid transit) along Sunrise Blvd.
  8. Sacramento RT bus service to the airport
