There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

The DNA of Sacramento Regional Transit

Sacramento Regional Transit has launched a new website devoted to the Downtown-Natomas-Airport light rail line at

During last week's web chat, RT General Manager Mike Wiley said RT is advancing the time schedule for the DNA line completion:

"The RT Board of Directors directed staff to accelerate completion of the Downtown-Natomas-Airport (DNA) project as much as possible. We have therefore sped up planning for the project, with an anticipated completion date in 2017 for the connection to the Airport. This would coincide with the completion of the Airport's Terminal B expansion. As a "down payment" on this commitment, RT just this week released a Request for Qualifications for the design and construction of the first phase of the DNA, from 7th Street to Richards Boulevard. The projected revenue operation date of that segment is October 31, 2010."
