RT offers special Event Pass for Golden 1 events
With a surge in ridership and improved service, Sacramento Regional Transit is making transit more convenient for those riders traveling to Golden 1 Center for events and Kings games with its new "Event Pass" for round-trip fare. The "Event Pass" will allow riders to purchase round-trip fare prior to an arena event with a single transaction, eliminating the need to stand in line at a fare vending machine after an event.
The "Event Pass" is $5.50 per person, the same price as two Basic single fare tickets. It can only be purchased at light rail stations on the day of a Golden 1 Center event at a Parkeon fare vending machine, and riders must have a Golden 1 Center event ticket in conjunction with the round-trip fare to be valid.
RT also offers an event Group Pass, available at the Parkeon machines and on the mobile fare app, RideSacRT, which allows up to 4 people to ride for $14 with a valid Golden 1 Center event or Kings game ticket.
Cash Mob winners announced each day at 4 p.m. (November 12 & 13)
Cyclists participating in the Cash Mob on November 12 and 13 in Folsom's Historic District will have a chance to double their cash mob spendings each day - up to $100. Participants are asked to spend a minimum of $10 in the Historic District and drop their receipts back by the Pedal Stop for a chance to win back twice what they spent.
The Spin and Spend Cash Mob is an opportunity to demonstrate that being bicycle friendly is good for business.
"Cyclists tend to have higher-than-average incomes and educational levels, facts that businesses should be aware of when thinking about creating bike-friendly atmospheres," notes the Institute for Transportation Research and Education.
Folsom's Historic District is a believer in bicycle friendliness by recently designating itself as a Bicycle Friendly Business District.
The Cash Mob will occur over the weekend of November 12 and 13. Receipts must be turned into the Pedal Stop (corner of Reading and Leidesdorff) by 4 p.m. each day to be eligible to have their receipts drawn for double payment.
Cyclists should check into the Pedal Stop when they arrive in the Historic District for a swag bag, door prize tickets and free bike valet parking.
In addition to the many interesting shops in the Historic District, cyclists can ice skate, visit the Farmer's Market (Saturday) and browse a bike show (Sunday.)
