Ride and Read on the New Sacramento Rolling Library Train!
The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) and the Sacramento Public Library launched Sacramento’s first Rolling Library Train during an event at the Cosumnes River College Station. The brightly decorated train promotes riding and reading. This is also the first time the interior of a SacRT light rail train has been completely reimagined.
Riders can sit back, relax and read a book while Sacramento’s new rolling Library Train takes them to their destination.
