RT Thanks Riders & Celebrates “Ride Transit October”

SACRAMENTO – During the month of October 2012, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) will conduct outreach activities and promotions to show appreciation for customers and to encourage new riders to discover the benefits of taking transit.

The “Ride Transit October” campaign will feature “Fun Fridays” at the RT Customer Service and Sales Center (located at 1225 R Street) when customers can take a spin on the prize wheel with purchase (October 5, 12, 19 and 26); “Customer Appreciation Days” when RT staff will greet customers at light rail stations and bus transfer areas (October 16, 17 and 18); and “Celebrating 25 Years of Light Rail” when RT staff will greet customers at light rail stations to commemorate the 25th anniversary of light rail in Sacramento (October 23, 24 and 25).

“Ride with the GM” is a favorite activity for Mike Wiley, RT General Manager/CEO. Wiley, who regularly rides the system, will travel on buses and light rail trains throughout the month to interact personally with passengers and receive feedback. Customers are encouraged to check his travel itinerary each week at www.sacrt.com.
