What's Next for the Sac Valley Station?

The Sac Valley Station is a historic train station and the 7th busiest Amtrak station in the nation. Built in 1926, it has since been updated to meet the needs of Sacramento today and tomorrow.

The master plan for the new development at Sacramento Valley Station aims to create an effective mobility hub for the capital of California built around the historic train station.

Upon completion, the revived station will bring together regional and local buses, Amtrak, the regional light rail, and extensive direct connections to the city and regional bicycle network. The project plans include an expanded transit center that will include a relocated light rail station, bus center, and future elevated concourse to expand connecting services and ease transitions between all modes of transportation.
