Clean Air in California

Jibe engaged its business partners and community in a series of events that featured the Coalition for Clean Air's Clean Air Pledge, and the simple actions that can make a big difference for air quality in California. Here's a short summary of accomplishments!

  • Bike Tech at Inderkum High School: Conducted air monitoring experiments to understand the makeup of air pollution and ways to combat it through fewer car trips and more bicycling.
  • Free SmaRT Rides in October: North Natomans took 1,900 rides in our local zone, courtesy of Jibe!
  • Natomas Unified School District: Almost 40 employees took the Clean Air Pledge, and completed 278 actions in support of cleaner air.
  • Neighbors Keeping Natomas Clean, Old Navy North Natomas, and A.L.L Real Estate: Removed 20-plus jumbo bags of trash, shopping carts, and other large debris along Jackrabbit Trail and the levee along the canal.
  • Mexican Consulate of Sacramento: Combined California Clean Air Month and Mexican Health Month and completed 330 activities that contributed to a cleaner environment and healthier lifestyle.
  • Saddle Up Saturdays: Residents visited local restaurants almost 90 times, biking nearly 500 miles to enjoy car-free dining.
  • Universal Technical Institute: 31 employees took the Clean Air Pledge, pledging 167 actions for cleaner air.

 

New Mural Celebrates Active Transportation

A new 2,500 square foot mural now adorns the back of Natomas Unified School District's headquarters building. The mural is visible from the levee on Jackrabbit Trail, where it intersects with Arena Blvd.

Created by muralist Shane Grammer and assistant artist Kone Lathipanya, the wall showcases school age children utilizing active transportation while weaving in fun images that evoke dreaming and exploration.

Jibe collaborated on this project, part of the Community Murals Sacramento Pilot Program, with the Sacramento Office of Arts and Culture and Natomas Unified School District. Jibe is always pleased to partner on projects that strengthen connections between our North Natomas community and the places we hold in common.

 

Wouldn't be October Without Walktober!

Jibe's annual Walktober event successfully reengaged students in our Walk To School Program. More than 100 additional students joined the program for the first time during the 2-week initiative. They weren't alone -- teachers and principals joined Walking School Buses to show their support. Overall, 834 students walked to school a total of 4795 times! Building on this momentum, Jibe continues to see new signups for its Walk To School Program throughout the fall season.

Bike Doc Closes for the Season

Bike Doc, your friendly (and free) bike fix-it service repaired almost 900 bikes in 2021. Now, with colder days on the horizon, the outdoor pop-up has closed for the year.

Bike Doc will be in full swing again this spring. Follow us on social or sign up for Bike Doc e-alerts to be notified when Bike Doc returns.

 

Charge!

Two new electric vehicle charging stations are now fully operational at Natomas Unified School District headquarters. The District utilized Jibe's Transportation Improvement Grant program to help fund the feature as a benefit to their staff and visitors. Charges are available to everyone for $4.00 (estimated) for 2 hours, and can be found in the front of the District's headquarters building at 1901 Arena Blvd.

Jibe Transportation Improvement Grants are designed to help North Natomas businesses inspire and reward their customers and employees for traveling smarter. Grants are available to North Natomas business owners, property owners and property managers.
