Galt's daily commuter bus service to Sacramento will continue for at least another two years under a contract agreement approved by the Galt City Council on Tuesday.
Four years ago, the city entered into a cost-sharing agreement with South County Transit Link that eventually resulted in the commuter bus route, launched last year. The bus is operated by Storer Coachways through a partnership between South County Transit and the city of Galt.
