Input Critically Needed

Jibe is actively seeking input from all riders as we plan for the best time to restart Jibe Express. With more employees returning downtown, the demand for shuttle service is increasing. However, Jibe must still determine when ridership demand warrants service. We cannot operate the shuttle with minimal riders.

Initially we expect to offer a limited schedule that will increase in frequency with rider demand. In order to determine initial demand, we need information on how many riders we can expect per loop, per day.

Please email info@jibe.org with information on the number of days per week in which you will ride the shuttle to work, as well as your ideal workplace arrival and departure times.

Need A Fix?

Did you know that North Natomas has public bike repair stations and bike pumps throughout our community? Called Bike Fix-It Stations, they include a spot to hang your bike, common tools, and a bike pump. All Fix-It stations are free to use.

Sponsored by Jibe, each of the six Fix-It Stations were installed in partnership with the organizations where they are located, and are a great place to use specific tools you may not have at home, or in case you need a quick, mid-ride adjustment.

The newest Fix-It Station is at Four Seasons at Westshore.

Where's your closest one?
