Free Resources for North Natomas Employers

While difficult, the pandemic has resulted in some things worth celebrating such as the reduction of single occupancy vehicles as a consequence of teleworking.

Jibe supports teleworking because it reduces the number of cars on the road and contributes to the elimination of gridlock.

As such we expanded our online telework offerings to now include the following:

  • Free 30 minute "HR on Demand" consultation with Mellonie Richardson, Principal Consultant, Bene Consulting Group.
  • Free 60 minute business consultation through Leading Resources Inc. (LRI).
  • Transportation improvement grants for up to $10,000 for resources that enable or expand upon telework efforts.
  • Additional freebies on our website.

Funds and paid consultations are limited to North Natomas business owners only.

Contact us today to learn more.


Bike Doc Is Now People Powered

If you know Bike Doc, you know that the program fosters independence by helping riders remove those little barriers that keep bikes in the garage and off the trail. For many riders, cycling is about independence - freedom to get where you need to go on your own. Bike Doc gained its own freedom from fuel this year when it stopped van hauling its tools and other supplies because Bike Doc mechanics, Glenn and Bill, built heavy duty bike trailers to augment the cargo bikes that the Docs usually ride to events!


Saturdays Get A Bit More Car Free!

Car free North Natomas eaters that enjoy saving money at local restaurants are celebrating the fact that Car Free Saturdays at participating local restaurants have been extended through September 12! Additionally, Jibe is in the process of developing another round of Car Free Saturday locations for October, and will announce those partners soon.


Chalk It Up Around Town

Chalk It Up, a non-profit grant making organization that empowers local artists, holds its flagship music and arts festival every year on Labor Day weekend. Instead of the usual location at Fremont Park in Midtown, this year's festival will take place throughout Sacramento with chalk art designs all around town and live music performances streaming on multiple platforms.

Jibe is sponsoring two North Natomas artists this year, and their designs will be chalked up at North Natomas Regional Park. If our artists Megan Kawada and Ahndiya Kuburi seem familiar to you, that's because they participated in Jibe's #BrighterDayBetterWay Art on Trails Project last July.

We invite you to join us for Chalk it Up 2020. Hop on your bike and check out our designs and those of other artists that will be Chalking It Up around North Natomas!


Let's Reconnect!

Sue Rasberry, a Jibe Express rider misses her fellow riders and sent us this note and a selfie:

When I decided to return to work as a retired annuitant, which meant a commute downtown, I was both anxious and excited to ride Jibe Express. I was anxious because I was concerned whether it would be safe and excited because I love the ease of riding the Express, and was hoping to see some old friends.

I feel very safe riding the shuttle, as the shuttle is set up for plenty of social distancing. I've been the only one on my Far East route this first week back. I encourage people who might be driving, and who have some anxiety that's keeping them from Jibe Express, to try it. I'm certain you'll feel safe. Trust me, there is plenty of room and nice drivers are an additional benefit.

City Council Moves Forward on Planet Friendly Action

Members of the Sacramento City Council Tuesday embraced the recommendations of the Mayors' Commission on Climate Change (a joint initiative of Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon) and voted to move forward immediately on 10 first-year action items developed with input from hundreds of Sacramentans.

Learn about the strategies, which were designed to make the cities carbon neutral by 2045, here.
