‘Bak2Sac’ free train ride program launched

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau is continuing a new program designed to get bicyclists to ride to Davis, patronize local businesses and get a free train ticket back to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor trains.

Called “Bak2Sac,” the program involves several businesses in Davis as co-sponsors who stand to benefit from increased visitation.

“The program is really pretty simple,” says Alan Humason, executive director of the YCVB. “Come to Davis on or with your bike, and visit participating businesses to pick up a voucher for a free train ticket back to Sacramento.

“The voucher is good for any train leaving after 7 p.m. on weekdays and after noon on weekends. Turn in the voucher at the Davis Amtrak station and receive the train ticket, free. Hop on board with your bike and go Bak2Sac!”

Participating businesses in Davis are Bistro 33, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Ken’s Bike-Ski-Board, Haute Again Consignment and Sudwerk Dock Store. Each location has its own procedure for claiming the voucher; purchases may be required.

More businesses will be recruited in the future and the program also will apply to upcoming events in Davis. The vouchers are available daily through Dec. 19.

“What is there to do in Davis?” a news release says. “Visit the Davis Farmers Market, listen to music at Picnic in the Park, experience the one and only U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, visit art galleries on the Second Friday ArtAbout, shop and dine downtown anytime you please.

“Check out the year-round schedule at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. You can also explore the beautiful Yolo County countryside, the perfect two-wheel destination, on a ride with the Davis Bike Club or on your own.”

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau works to encourage visitation to the communities of Davis, Winters and Woodland and the outlying areas of Yolo County. Brochures and services are available at the Visitor Center, 132 E St., Suite 200, in downtown Davis.
