Yolo Bus has rolled out a shuttle service to help ease traffic around the Golden 1 Arena during events.
Mike Luken is Deputy Director of the Yolo County Transportation Department. He says the new service has been dubbed "The Y," will take passengers from Woodland, Davis or West Sacramento to the downtown area.
"We've been working very close with the Sacramento Police Department and Public Works Department to craft our service with their traffic management plan, which calls for street closures when events exceed 10,000," Says Luken.
Luken also says regular riders of Yolo Bus can also benefit from the shuttle, giving them a faster way to leave the crowded downtown area during events at Golden 1. The roundtrip cost of "The Y" is $7.
