Three members of the Bee's editorial board will set out Wednesday morning on a Great Race to explore different modes of commuting from the Sacramento suburbs to downtown. Ginger Rutland will take the bus and light rail from Fair Oaks near Bella Vista High School to the Bee's main office at 21st and Q. Pia Lopez will make the same trip by car. And Bee columnist Daniel Weintraub will travel by bike, via city streets and the American River trail. Ginger will be struggling against recent pressures on the Regional Transit system, where passengers are payng more and getting less. Pia will be a single occupant fighting against a metered onramp and a crowded highway. Daniel will try to avoid the busiest parkways in the suburbs as he makes his way to the trail but will exit at Sacramento State and then approach downtown on busy H Street. See the Sunday Forum section for the outcome of the race and our thoughts on transportation in Sacramento, then join in and share your commuting stories with us and other Sacramentans.
