The City of Sacramento is transforming the downtown’s historic train depot — Sacramento Valley Station — into a transportation hub to serve all modes of travel to and from the station.
The Sacramento Valley Station is located at 4th and I Streets serving as the gateway to the northern edge of downtown Sacramento and the southern boundary of the 240 acre Railyards redevelopment site. Since its opening in 1926, the historic station has served as the primary rail passenger station for northern California, and has grown in ridership to the nation’s seventh busiest station.
Between these milestones, the station has suffered from decades of deferred maintenance and the impacts of the interstate freeway infrastructure during the 1960’s. However, since the City of Sacramento acquired the building in 2006, improvements have been forth coming and planning for a fully integrated intermodal facility is moving forward.
The Sacramento Intermodal Transportation Facility is a master-planned, multi-phased project that will enable state-of-the art operations for multiple modes of transportation at a centralized location. It will provide user-friendly connections between all modes of transportation – train, light rail, bus, bicycle, pedestrian, taxi and automobile.
