Arena construction affects Yolobus

Yolobus changesW

From page A6 | August 12, 2014 |

By Lucas Frerichs
Due to demolition and construction work related to the Sacramento Entertainment and Sports Center in downtown Sacramento, some Yolobus routes and bus stops in downtown Sacramento will change. These changes are expected to take place Friday, Aug. 15, when the construction contractor is expected to be finished with certain bus stop improvements and starts laying out “K” rail where our bus stops used to be.

The key thing to know is that the bus stops on L Street between 10th and Fifth streets will normally no longer be available to our buses on or soon after Friday.
The following bus stops will replace the old stops for boarding and de-boarding Yolobus passengers:
* Ninth Street, just south of L Street: The arena construction contractor is extending the length of this existing bus stop and adding a bus landing pad to accommodate at least two buses at a time. Four transit systems currently use this bus stop to board passengers, and Yolobus will be the fifth.

Capitol Mall, between Eighth and Seventh streets: The construction contractor is building facilities to accommodate about four buses on Capitol Mall between Eighth and Seventh streets. Yolobus is providing two bus shelters and some bus benches for this stop and RT and Yolobus will be installing two real-time LED signs that will show you when (in minutes) your bus is due. The real-time signs may take a bit longer to install.

This will be considered a major facility where transfers can happen between buses and light rail. Where the Yolobus bus schedules currently publish bus stop times for the old L/Sixth Street bus stop, please use those times for the new Capitol Mall/Seventh Street stop, instead.

* Fifth Street, just north of Capitol Mall: This bus stop, including RT bus shelter, is being moved a half-block farther south on Fifth Street. Our buses will be able to use this stop for several inbound (to Sacramento) and outbound (to Yolo County) trips.
The accompanying map shows part of the outbound (to Yolo County) routing that will be changing.

With the exception of the changes noted on the map, the rest of the downtown routing remains the same.

On behalf of the Yolo County Transportation District, we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience these bus stop changes may cause. We worked quite hard with the city of Sacramento, the developer and Sacramento Regional Transit District to try to develop bus stop and routing changes that we felt were responsive to the needs of our Yolobus riders.

For more information, go to, or call Yolobus at 530-666-2877.
