Light Rail

Sacramento has a good system.  Part of RoW resides on a freeway that was never finished. There are talks about extending a line towards the Airport.

There are 3 services/lines. Gold line runs from Folsom to the Train Station. The Blue line runs from Watt-I-80 to Meadowview. The Green line operates from Township-9 to 13th Street.
