Hit the Road with Jibe Express

On August 1, North Natomas commuters got more glide in their ride, thanks to the new fleet of Jibe Express buses. They've got a fresh look on the outside, smooth accommodations on the inside, with Wi-Fi and air conditioning floating gently all around. The onboard technology doesn't end there. In the coming weeks, we'll be rolling out additional features including stop cords and a web tracking service that lets riders use their smartphone to see where the bus is.

How will you spend your relaxed ride to work? You could read the paper, play games, tweet, scroll Facebook, swipe left, swipe right, finish a chapter, chat with a neighbor, prepare for a meeting, update a resume, make a shopping list or daydream. The buses also have tinted windows, so you can freely people-watch in total comfort and near privacy.

Westside Story

If you live on the westside of North Natomas, we have good news. With the increase of homes being built in this area, we are excited to expand our service with an additional route in your neighborhood. Bicyclists are also welcome. Each neighborhood-friendly vehicle is equipped with a bike rack for three bicycles.

Ha-ha-ha All the Way (to and from) Home

As the summer winds down, it's time for new classrooms, new teachers and new chances to get outside and walk or bike to school. So ditch the car and walk with your kids. Or join a walking school bus. Whether your kids are chatting with friends, chasing butterflies or racing to the corner, they're getting great exercise and developing healthy habits. It's also a thoughtful way for you to help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality.

Have You Heard the One about the Trip Scanner?

This program has so many benefits, it's incredible! Kids love the fun and prizes. Parents love receiving a notification when their child arrives on campus and scans in. And it's so simple.
All students can register to get a free Trip Scanner Card. Every day they walk, bike, scoot or skate from home, join a Walking School Bus, or park & walk at least three blocks, they get their Trip Card scanned. With each scan, they earn virtual money called Boot Bucks that can be spent on cool prizes at the Boot Buck Store.

Find out if your child's school participates!

Vision Zero Now

Sacramento is a Vision Zero City. What does this mean? Vision Zero is a traffic safety philosophy that rejects the notion that traffic crashes are simply "accidents," but instead preventable incidents that can and must be systematically addressed. Through Vision Zero, the City of Sacramento and its partners are committed to working together to create safer streets.

The city is launching a traffic safety campaign "Our Safety is Homegrown." As part of our Vision Zero efforts, this campaign seeks to change individual behavior that will increase the safety of our streets.

Our Safety is Homegrown means that we acknowledge small choices can have critical impacts on our city's overall safety. That's why you'll see transportation safety messages this summer around town, on your phone, and perhaps in-person at neighborhood events encouraging people to walk, bike, and drive more safely.

Want to support this initiative with a yard sign? We have several available at Jibe Headquarters. Stop by Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or contact Abbey at to get one.

Food Truck Grub with a Free Side of Valet

Sacramento Mobile Foods, better known as SactoMoFo, does one thing and does it right. Great food delivered from kitchens on wheels. Get your ride on and don't fret about bike security because the bike valet service is free.

Here in North Natomas, food trucks circle the parking lot of the North Natomas Library on the third Thursday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m. These are family-friendly community events, often with attractions including music (sometimes live, sometimes pre-recorded and subsequently amplified), kid-friendly activities, picnic space and more. So, hop on your bike and savor the evening and/or tacos.

Vendors participating in September include:

^aEURc Fil-Gud: Asian cuisine that make you feel good

^aEURc Hefty Gyros: Mediterranean meals to fill you up

^aEURc Slider Nation: Burgers and fries as good as a 7th inning stretch

^aEURc Zintzuni Cocina Mexicana: Delicious and portable Mexican dishes

^aEURc Costa's Finest Kettle Corn: Technically dessert, but why all these rules?

Attend a pop-up workshop or complete the online survey by September 10.

You Might as Well JUMP

You've seen those JUMP bikes around Sacramento, right? They're the red electric-assist bikes positioned around town that are affordable and easy to rent. Perfect for tourists, day trippers and people who just need to get to Point B without a car. It basically works like this:

1. Find a Bike: Download the JUMP Bikes app to sign up and locate a bike nearby.

2. Unlock & Ride: JUMP bikes feature e-assist, giving you a boost every time you pedal.

3. Lock & Leave: End each ride by locking the bike within the system area at a designated hub or a bike rack, making sure not to block walkways.

JUMP Bikes is looking for input for future hubs, share your thoughts!
