[ARCHIVED] Citrus Heights Input Needed for Unmet Transit Needs Hearings

Unmet Transit Needs

Whether you ride daily, occasionally or haven't tried transit yet, the Sacramento Area Council of Governments is looking for feedback on our area's bus, dial-a-ride, paratransit and light rail transit services. SACOG accepts transit needs related comments from any area in the counties of Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba.

What are your thoughts on local transit service? Would you like to use it for more trips, but don't because of issues like where it goes, the schedule or cost? Are there places you really need to go but cannot currently? Please give us your thoughts by attending an Unmet Transit Needs meeting or by relaying your comments to SACOG.

The California State Transportation Development Act (TDA) requires the Unmet Transit Needs Process be conducted annually by Regional Transportation Planning Agencies. SACOG is the Regional Transportation Planning Agency for the counties of Sacramento, Yuba, Sutter and Yolo. SACOG staff conducts the Unmet Transit Needs process annually for these four counties.

The TDA requires that SACOG make a determination whether there are "unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet" in the jurisdictions throughout the four counties. The Unmet Transit Needs meetings are scheduled to begin in October.

Note: To arrange for language translation or sign language interpreters for deaf persons, please call (916) 321-9000 or TDD access (916) 321-9550 at least 72 hours prior to the meeting. Meetings are accessible to disabled persons.
