SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Security experts from across the country are in Sacramento this week checking the safety of buses and light-rail trains.
Officials from Denver, Portland and Los Angeles transit agencies will be touring the system and making security suggestions.
Earlier this year there was a murder, and an officer-involved shooting on board RT trains.
RT board chairman Phil Serna says he wants to have sufficient security once the new downtown arena opens.
“When you think about the new arena downtown, you’re going to have thousands of people that may have never ridden our system in the past and this will be the first time they get to experience it, so we really want to put our best foot forward,” says Serna.
It has been about a decade since the last independent review of RT’s security.
