Jibe Express - Coming Soon!

Mark your calendar! Jibe Express is resuming service Monday, July 13th with newly reconfigured routes and times.

Service will start on a limited schedule and loops will be added as demand increases.

As part of its restart, Jibe implemented new safety measures to protect the health of its riders and drivers.

Stay tuned! Look for an eblast with details on the new routes and timetables.

Walk, Bus, Bike...Art!

With our partners Wide Open Walls and California Family Fitness, Jibe "broke paint" on a 200 foot mural on the west side of Truxel Road, just south of Natomas Crossing Drive. Jibe commissioned local artist Ali Futrell to paint "Electric Energy" which was finished last week. On the heels of the mural, Jibe also began the second phase of this project - an install of 34 large banners at intermittent locations on the Jackrabbit and Fisherman's Lake trails. Jibe placed a call to local artists to submit the designs that were used in this project, and gave preference to artists from North Natomas.

As part of its #BrighterDayBetterWay campaign, Jibe hopes the new additions to the trails will inspire more people to get out and use them on the regular. While the mural will be up indefinitely, Jibe's banners will be removed July 31st.

Catch 'em while you can!

Indomitable Together.

Jibe was proud to partner with Republic FC's Indomitable Hands, Raley's, and SacRT to deliver meals to at-risk seniors in North and South Natomas recently. Local residents received heat-and-eat meals from Raley's delivered by community partners, including Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby on board Jibe Express.

As a transportation organization committed to our community, we look forward to more opportunities to serve in the future.

Teleworking Each Day Keeps Cars at Bay!

Recognizing that teleworking employees reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles on the road, Jibe is pleased to offer grants and resources for local employers who support telework.

If you are a North Natomas business owner starting a telework program for your employees, then Jibe wants to hear from you! Apply for one of our Transportation Improvement Grants and have your qualifying telework-related expenses reimbursed.
