Revised Routes and Schedules Streamline Mobility and Improve Local Services
ELK GROVE, Calif. – October 12, 2017 — The City of Elk Grove began promoting new e-Tran bus routes and sharing information about service changes this week that will go into effect on Sunday, October 29, 2017. The revised routes were in response to the Elk Grove City Council’s adoption of their Comprehensive Operational Analysis completed in April 2017. Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) students and families will notice the following changes just before Halloween:
- Renumbered and restructured local and commuter routes.
- Coordinated service between local routes and express Route 110, improving connection along the Big Horn Boulevard corridor with Cosumnes River College light rail station and Kaiser Promenade Medical offices in Elk Grove.
- Improved Saturday local route services.
- Discontinued Sunday service, with the exception of e-van services available (for those eligible).
In addition to serving seniors, persons with disabilities, and military personnel, students ages 5 years old to 18 years old who are pursuing a high school diploma are eligible to purchase an e-tran monthly student pass, a discounted daily pass or a discounted 10-Ride pass with a valid school photo ID card or RT Student photo ID card. Parents and students are encouraged to review the new schedules and make any necessary transportation adjustments.
