Transportation Infrastructure

 The County’s transportation network includes four major freeways, a Union Pacific Railroad transcontinental and intrastate freight rail service, AMTRAK passenger rail service, and a robust bus and light rail system. The Port of Sacramento provides direct ocean freight service to all major United States and world ports, shipping approximately 870,000 tons of cargo annually and links with the rail and freeway systems. The Sacramento County Department of Airports operates several airports including the Sacramento International Airport for passenger and cargo service; and Mather Airport, the cargo facility for the region.
