Where We've Been

Twenty Years of Investment for the Regional Transportation Center

The Sacramento Valley Station building has long been a cherished civic icon with a rich history. Since its opening in 1926, it has continued to serve Sacramento as an important mobility anchor.


In the late 1990s, the City of Sacramento in partnership with the State Rail Agency and Sacramento Regional Transit began planning and investment for the transfer of the station from the private railroad to public ownership. In 2006, the City was able purchase the historic station and surrounding grounds. Local and regional investment in the station has continued in three phases to implement improvements and expansion.

Where We're Going

In 2018, the City concluded work on an initial conceptual planning that resulted in two master plan concepts. In 2019, the City will refine these two concepts to develop a preferred option plan and multi-phase implementation plan. In 2020, key elements of these plans will be incorporated into the Railyards Specific Plan to provide a pathway for expanding regional transportation services and developing the SVS site with land uses supportive of transportation.

The plan area will be designed for sustainable principles on the City-owned site under the framework of the International Living Futures Institute Living Community Challenge.

Focus Group Meetings

In July 2019, the City hosted a stakeholder focus group meeting with representatives from mobility groups to gather input on the station's bus facility, bicycle network, and rail and station programming. Below are links to this meeting's materials.
