  • Catch the SCT/LINK Highway 99 Express route at Galt City Hall.

  • You will make a direct transfer to e-tran Routes 52 or 60 at the Shell Station, located at the corner Elk Grove Blvd @ Emerald Vista Dr.

  • e-tran Routes 52 or 60 will wisk you in style to Downtown Sacramento after making several stops in Elk Grove.

  • From there you’ll have access to Regional Transit (RT) bus & light rail system at your fingertips.

  • In the afternoon, e-tran Routes 49, 52 or 60 will connect you to SCT/LINK at the Shell Station, located at the corner Elk Grove Blvd @ Emerald Vista Dr.
