Wait until the train pulls out of the station before crossing the tracks to the other side of the station. Be aware that another train may be approaching in the opposite direction.

4. Traveling with Children or a Group
When you are traveling with children, always hold their hand when boarding or exiting the train. Doors are timed to close after boarding or exiting trains. Children or adults can be left behind if you do not board together. If you are separated from your group, call 321-2877 or tell the light rail operator or a uniformed SacRT employee.

5. Climbing Between Light Rail Vehicles
Climbing or riding on couplers between light rail vehicles is prohibited. Serious and fatal accidents may happen when people attempt to climb over couplers between light rail vehicles.
