Re "Long overdue for light-rail extension" (Letters, Aug. 10): The writer says there is no public transportation between Davis and Roseville without using the downtown bus station. There is public transportation in the form of the Capitol Corridor train. It connect Davis with Roseville 6 times a day weekdays, four to five times a day weekends by train and connecting Amtrak bus at the Sacramento Valley train station on 6th and I Streets in Sacramento.
I have never felt unsafe at this station. If by public bus station, the writer refers to the Greyhound bus station, that has been relocated from downtown to Richard's Boulevard and is not connected with the Amtrak station. An additional bonus for bike-riding UCD students taking the train: they can bring their bicycles on board. The last car on the train usually has bike racks.
