New light rail expansion serves South Sac, community colleges and Elk Grove


Regional Transit's new light rail extension to Cosumnes River College is now up and running. The project finished early and came in under budget, just in time for the first day of school for many riders.

This expansion on the Blue Line is only four miles long, but it's a big deal for riders on the south side of Sacramento County trying to save time and money.

John Mohammed said riding light rail beat driving in traffic and parking downtown which gets to be very expensive. Mohammed is pretty happy about the light rail expansion. The CalTrans engineer from Elk Grove takes public transportation every day. And Monday, it just got a whole lot easier.

"The new light rail station is one mile from my house," Mohammed said.

Abdul Amjad is checking out the new expanded line today, the one that was designed with community college students in mind.
