SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Getting to Golden 1 Center doesn’t have to be a grind.

If you live in Woodland, Davis or West Sacramento, the Yolo County Transit District set up “The Y Shuttle,” which is a specially designed route to get you around major events at the new arena.

In Sacramento, Regional Transit has launched a partnership with ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft to offer a $5 discount on rides if the passenger is picked up and dropped off at one of six light rail stations:

-Roseville Road
-Florin Road
-Franklin Bouleveard
-Watt Avenue/Manlove
-Sunrise Boulevard
-Power Inn Road

If you’re catching a ride on light rail, a single-ride ticket will run you $2.75, and riders are being told to expect trips to take less than an hour to get to and from the arena.

Amtrak will also be operating extra late-night trains on event days. The Capitol Corridor trains travel from Auburn to San Jose and you can book tickets online.

For those in the Roseville area, the “game day express” will run only during Kings games – starting with the first home game on Oct. 27. A day-of, round-trip fare will cost $15. But for adults buying in advance, it’s $12.

Anyone who drives can reserve a parking spot in advance. Head to for more info.

Of course, if you want to avoid driving, ride-sharing or public transit altogether, you can always walk to the arena.

You could also ride your bike, because there are also bike racks and a bike valet outside the arena.
