Comprehensive Transit Analysis

Comprehensive Transit Map
The City of Elk Grove’s e-tran provides both local and commuter public transit service. The City is conducting a Comprehensive Transit Analysis that will be used to define the future of transit in our community and this survey is one way we will seek the public’s input. We want to know your thoughts on current transit services and areas for improvement that may be important to you and our community. 

What you have to say is important in helping to make improvements and plan for the future. Thank you for your participation.

The project includes:

  • A review of transit service needs and requirements and development of service improvement options to best meet the mobility needs of residents and visitors of the City;
  • A review of current transit policies and procedures; and
  • The development of an Action Plan to guide the implementation of transit service improvements over the next 5 to 10+ year period.
