Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau introduces a new program designed to get bicyclists to ride to Davis, patronize local businesses, and get a free train ticket back to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor railroad. Called “Bak2Sac,” the program involves several businesses in Davis as co-sponsors who stand to benefit from increased visitation.

“The program is really pretty simple,” says Alan Humason, Executive Director of the YCVB. “Come to Davis on or with your bike, and visit participating businesses to pick up a voucher for a free train ticket back to Sacramento. The voucher is good for any train leaving after 7pm on weekdays and after noon on weekends. Turn in the voucher at the Davis Amtrak station and receive the train ticket, free. Hop on board with your bike and go Bak2Sac!”
