SACRT FIRST LAUNCHED THIS CURB-TO-CURB ON-DEMAND MICROTRANSIT SERVICE JUST IN CITRUS HEIGHTS NEARLY TWO YEARS AG SINCE THEN IT HAS PROVED SO POPULAR THEY ARE EXPANDING, HOWEVER WITH A SLIGHT TWIST.


YOU USE AN APP TO REQUEST A PICK-UP AND THE SACRT SHUTTLE WOULD MEET YOU AT YOUR CURB FOR CURB-TO-CURB SERVICE ESPECIALLY EFFECTIVE, ACCORDING TO TRANSIT OFFICIALS, BECAUSE THE SMALLER BUSES WERE EASIER TO NAVIGATE THROUGH NEIGHBORHOODS AND TO ACCOMODATE THOSE WITH DISABILITIES.


PREVIOUSLY THE SERVICE WAS ONLY OFFERED IN GREATER CITRUS HEIGHTS, SOUTH SACRAMENTO AND RANCHO CORDOVA AREAS.


"The service relies on small, neighborhood-friendly shuttle buses to easily maneuver on residential streets, and they conveniently accommodate people with disabilities," the news release says.
