RT Station Link, Lyft and Uber, Sacramento, California, 2016
5 minutes Date Launched: Oct 3, 2016
The Sacramento Regional Transit (RT) has partnered with Uber, Lyft, and Yellow Cab to launch a limited-time program called RT Station Link. The program is designed to encourage transit ridership in Sacramento by providing economic incentive to passengers taking an Uber, Lyft, or Yellow Cab to or from one of six participating RT light rail stations. Passengers will receive up to $5 off their rides for up to 10 rides. RT Station Link was announced on the eve of the new Golden 1 Center’s grand opening as it is believed to be a solution to the arena’s limited parking. The program is funded by a grant from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District and Sacramento Area Council of Governments.
