The Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) operates a large light rail system and connecting bus service throughout the Sacramento area covering 418 square miles. The light rail system includes 45 stations, 76 vehicles, and is the tenth busiest in the United States. In December 2007, Sacramento Regional Transit committed to completing the extension from the Sacramento Valley Station to Richards Blvd which would take it through the Township Nine, with a station at Richards Blvd. and North 7th Street.
The Sacramento Regional Transit green line extension of the light rail to the River District, will ultimately extend all the way to the Sacramento International Airport. The extension is anticipated to be completed by fall 2010.
