The Sacramento Regional Transit District made the announcement Thursday.

Starting June 17 the last train will depart the Historic Folsom Station at 11:30 pm Monday through Saturday and 9:30 pm on Sundays. It will make stops at Hazel, Iron Point, and Glenn stations and arrive in Downtown Sacramento after midnight.

Regular service hours currently end around 7 pm. Evening service has been offered for special events.
